Oeko-Tex® Standard 100

Cargo Crew Shirts are officially certified

Noticed a new label on your Cargo Crew shirt lately? We're proud to have worked with our manufacturers to ensure that our shirt range is Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified.

The independent auditing process is rigorous, ensuring that every inch of your uniform shirt are 100% safe for you and your team to wear. Certified products meet the highest level of environmental standards and are free from harmful substances throughout the manufacturing process. Yes please!

We explore what Oeko-Tex® means to you and to your work uniform program.

What is Oeko-Tex® Standard 100?

Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is a globally recognised certification system that evaluates and regulates textile products for their safety and sustainability. 

Certification means that products have been independantly tested and are free from harmful substances and chemicals that can have a negative effect on our health and the environment.

Tests are run by independently accredited labs across the world, who thoroughly and methodically test every minute detail of the garment, including the fabric and all accessories, buttons and finishings - down to the last thread!

Approved garments are given a unique QR code to print on their label, allowing consumers to check that certification is legitimate. That's right, you can scan your garment and ensure it's certified. 

What does certification mean for me?

As a customer, our Oeko-Tex® certification means you can trust your Cargo Crew Shirt to be a quality, ethical product that is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and safe for your team. 

Our aim in working to Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is to allow you to make environmentally conscious as well as health-conscious decisions in choosing your uniform.

Standards are voluntary, rigourous, and updated and audited every year, so you can trust that we work to maintain this standard.
