Product integrity and transparent supply chain.

OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an international certification system for raw materials, intermediate and final products in the textile sector at all stages of processing.

The aim is to achieve products free of substances harmful to human health. FARIADACOSTA is authorised to use the Oeko-Tex ® label, Appendix 4, Tested for GMO and Appendix 6.

The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) is an industry tool designed to recognize the best practices of farmers, ensuring that wool comes from farms with a progressive approach to managing their land, and from sheep that have been treated responsibly. 

On farms, the certification ensures that sheep are treated with respect to their Five Freedoms* and also ensures best practices in the management and protection of the land. The standard is globally applicable to all breeds of sheep, and mulesing is strictly prohibited. 

The goals of the Responsible Wool Standard are to provide the industry with a tool to recognize the best practices of farmers; ensuring that wool comes from farms with a progressive approach to managing their land, and from sheep that have been treated responsibly.
