What can you expect from all products
with our quality seal:
Consciously selected resources
We want our favourite pieces to be comfortable and long lived. That is why we make our products with carefully selected materials. These also include accessory materials like yarn, buttons, zippers and labels. We prefer to use natural materials like cotton.
Your health is important to us. That is why we also test our materials for toxins. The "My Favourite Piece by Takko Fashion" like also complies with the requirements of external bodies such as OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 or GOTS.
The best quality is pointless if the fit is not right or the item pinches and itches. That is why we prioritise the comfort of our "My Favourite Piece by Takko Fashion" products. It is important, especially for children, that clothing is comfortable and feels good on the skin. But adults also value a perfect fit. Our internal quality assurance team puts the products through multiple fit and comfort tests.
Monitored social standards
We sell our products with a clean conscience because our "My Favourite Piece by Takko Fashion" products are exclusively made in tested production facilities. Through audits performed by ourselves as well as by impartial bodies, we examine the facilities with regard to safety, working conditions, and much more. Only those who meet our strict requirements are allowed to produce for us.
OEKO-TEX® Standard 100
Behind this term is a globally uniform, impartial auditing and certification system for raw, intermediate and final textile goods at all levels of production, as well as the accessory materials that are used. OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 was introduced in 1992 and forms the basis for an extensive and strict list of measures for the tests. All components of the tested products must comply with all OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 tests in order to receive certification. The OEKO-TEX® toxin tests vary depending on the respective purpose of the textiles and materials being tested. This means the more frequently a product makes contact with the skin and the more sensitive the skin, the greater the human-ecological requirements that the product must fulfil. Products for babies and small children thus have the strictest requirements.
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)
GOTS is the global leading standard for processing textiles made from organic natural fibres. Certified products must fulfil strict environmental-technical requirements along the entire textile production chain. Adherence to social criteria is also monitored. In order to receive certification the textile products must consist at least 70 % of organic natural fibres. If chemical additives are used, such as dyes, these must fulfil certain ecological and toxicological criteria.
For sustainable cotton production
The production of our goods should be as environmentally friendly as possible. As a member of the Better Cotton Initiative we support more sustainable cotton for that reason. The BCI teaches farmers and their employees techniques for saving water and how to keep the usage of pesticides to a minimum, among other things. The BCI also provides education on the topic of workplace safety.
