Sustainability


NEW LIFE YARNS

As a German supplier of textile products for interior design, the responsible use of resources is a key concern for us. In manufacturing our products, we attach great importance to compliance with the highest environmental and quality standards.

Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword at Apelt, rather it’s our aspiration to integrate the latest techniques and developments into the various manufacturing stages in order to ensure continuous further development.

Our jacquard woven products are made using warp yarns from 100% recycled PET bottles.

oekotex Standard 100

All our products are certified in accordance with Ökotex Standard 100. That is how we are constantly contributing towards protecting our environment.

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s most well-known labels for textiles that have been tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and a high level of product safety. The testing is carried out by the independent OEKO-TEX® institutes on the basis of the extensive OEKO-TEX® catalogue of criteria. The testing procedure covers numerous substances, both regulated and non-regulated, that could be harmful to human health.

In many cases, the limit values set for STANDARD 100 exceed national and international specifications. The catalogue of criteria is updated at least once annually and is expanded to include new scientific findings or legal requirements.

Whether it is textiles for babies, clothing, home textiles or decorative fabrics: Goods awarded the STANDARD 100 label are an indication of confidence.

 


GOTS

We have again demonstrated our high ecological standards with another internationally-recognised certification.  From 1st June 2021, we are authorised to carry the GOTS environmental certificate for the sustainably-produced, high-quality “Decorate your night” bed linen collection.

GOTS stands for “Global Organic Textile Standard” and is recognised throughout the world as the leading seal of sustainability for clothing, home textiles, body care products and food packaging. GOTS relies on strict environmental and social standards along the entire textile supply chain.  GOTS is active throughout the world on all markets and is constantly growing.
