Health & Environmental Responsibility: WE’RE ON IT!

When establishing OFFENSIVE, an important criteria was to use fabric that is comfortable, long lasting and safe to wear.

Personal health issues raised our awareness of environmental toxins, their negative impact on health as well as the environment.

To avoid this – and ensure the well-being of our community and environment – we select and use fabric certified with the Standard 100 OEKO-TEX®.

OEKO-TEK is an independent organisation. It tests fabric for harmful chemicals, ensuring the article is harmless to our health and environment.

  • Some chemicals are known – or suspected to cause: skin irritation, allergy, cancer, damage to the nervous system, internal organs and reproductive systems.
  • OEKO-TEK tests for these chemicals.
    • The OEKO-TEX certification process ensures the fabric is free from these chemicals and maximises consumer safety.
