At CASAGiN, certifications guarantee the quality of raw materials, their traceability, environmental impact and respect for the rights of the workers involved in the supply chain. Textile certifications are the most important aspect when it comes to sustainable fashion. On the market, for example, there are many types of clothes and fabrics, many of which undergo aggressive treatments and are made with chemical additives that inevitably change their characteristics. In order to be sure that a garment you are buying does not contain these harmful substances, you can use textile certifications. This is why we have created a page that summarises the main certifications and guarantees of our fabrics. In this way everyone can know how the garments they buy are made.
It is an independent control and certification system for textile products at all stages of manufacture. It guarantees that textile products do not contain or release substances that are harmful to human health. OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 means that the manufacturer is certified as environmentally friendly in both processes and factories and tested for harmful substances on products.
European label used to certify the reduced environmental impact of products offered by companies that have obtained its use. It certifies environmentally friendly products, allowing the consumer to recognise through a mark the environmental friendliness of the product, throughout its life cycle, which can thus differentiate itself from competitors on the market, while maintaining high environmental performance standards.
It is an international non-profit certificate, created primarily with the aim of halting deforestation and the associated social problems that spread around the world. FSC-certified products come from controlled forests, where deforestation is carried out intelligently, and in most cases followed by the replanting of trees. FSC is an indispensable certification for the future of forests.
It is a standard developed by leading international organic farming organisations to assure consumers that organic textiles are produced in accordance with stringent environmental and social criteria applied at all levels of production, from the field collection of natural fibres to the subsequent manufacturing stages, through to the labelling of the finished product. GOTS certified textiles contain at least 70% natural fibres from organic farming.
It is a certification promoted by the Textile Exchange with the aim of encouraging the use of recycled materials in the textile industry. The Textile Exchange is an international non-profit association, working to drive the textile industry towards more sustainable fashion.
GRS certification is designed to meet the needs of consumers who want to verify the presence of recycled materials in the products they buy. The Global Recycle Standard also guarantees socially ethical practices and environmental responsibility, especially in the proper use of potentially hazardous chemicals.
A certification that helps to ensure a responsible and more sustainable production system. BLUESIGN indicates the best route of each fabric through the manufacturing process, the use of the most suitable categories of substances and products, improvements at each stage, thus intensifying step by step efforts to develop more sustainable processes aligned with the best available practices.
Reach is a European regulation that provides for the testing of all chemicals produced in or imported into Europe. Reach sets important environmental and social goals: it protects human health and the environment by improving knowledge of the dangers of using chemicals; it requires the use of alternative methods to the testing of chemicals, which is normally carried out on animals; it improves the innovation sector and the competitiveness of the European chemical industry.
Reach is a regulation drawn up in cooperation with Greenpeace, which currently applies to all products manufactured in Europe.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is made from waste such as fishing nets recovered from the oceans and aquaculture, fabric scraps from mills and carpets destined for landfill. It is an infinitely recyclable material.
For every 10,000 tonnes of raw material needed to produce ECONYL® yarn, 70,000 barrels of crude oil and 57,100 tonnes of CO2 can be saved.
