As part of our commitment to your health and the environment, Lenoites works to exposure harmful chemicals. We use environmentally friendly dyes, and all products are Oeko-Tex® certified to be free of chemicals. The Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 was developed by European textile institutes committed to finding a way to reduce our environmental footprint by maintaining standards for the screening of harmful substances in consumer textiles.
All Lenoites silk products have been independently tested and certified in accordance with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 for Product Class I – this is the highest and most stringent class, deemed to be safe for babies and toddlers. Many other silk products that claim to be OEKO-TEX® certified only meet Product Class II, being for articles worn close to the skin for adults and children over 3 years old. We have chosen to comply with the strictest criteria to ensure that all our products are safe for even the most sensitive skin.

Among other things, it tests for azo colourants, formaldehyde, nickel and many other harmful chemicals.
