Swiss perfection, innovative ideas, attention to detail, skill and extensive technical know-how all contribute to developing products with excellent fit, the best fabrics and superb comfort. We have been committed to such craftmanship since the company's founding. The results are superior Swiss quality products.
For 75 years, CALIDA has been synonymous with long-lasting quality. Now, the Swiss company is taking another step on this path with the introduction of Made in Green by OEKO-TEX®. The Made in Green product label is not only issued based on compliance with strict social responsibility and ecological criteria; it also certifies that the textiles carrying the label have been tested for harmful substances.
Made in Green by OEKO-TEX® is currently the most transparent and stringent label available. It allows consumers to trace production details along the delivery chain, all the way back to the raw materials. Made in Green by OEKO-TEX® is a product label for safe and sustainably produced ready-made garments. It combines certification requirements from OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and STeP by OEKO-TEX®.
More specifically, this means that products are:
made exclusively with materials tested according to the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 in terms of harmful substances;
made in environmentally-friendly facilities;
made at safe and socially responsible workplaces.
Want to find out more? For maximum transparency, all of our items marked with the Made in Green by OEKO-TEX® label feature a unique product ID on the label, which you can scan in order to track the entire production chain.
