What’s Included?
Join us at one of our exclusive events where you’ll explore the comprehensive range of OEKO-TEX® certifications and services and understand the importance they have for both manufacturers and brands. Engage with our team and enjoy networking opportunities over lunch.

As consumer demand for transparency in textile supply chains reaches unprecedented levels, our session becomes a pivotal resource. With growing public attention and awareness of sustainability, we aim to provide the latest insights into the OEKO-TEX® product portfolio. Discover new offerings, including the OEKO-TEX® RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS and ORGANIC COTTON, and gain a deep understanding of STANDARD 100®, STeP®, and MADE IN GREEN®.

What will I learn?
Learn precisely how you can integrate these certifications into your textile supply chain as effective transparency tools, or how your facility and product ranges can become certified under the OEKO-TEX® umbrella. By the seminar’s conclusion, you’ll be well-informed about the recently launched OEKO-TEX® products and their potential benefits for your company.

Shirley® serves as the OEKO-TEX® office for the UK, offering a one stop shop for all OEKO-TEX® products and certification services.
