Covolan_WebereiThe Brazilian company Covolan Indústria Têxtil Ltda provides the material for the fashionable jeans look with an important added extra: the company was the first textiles company in Brazil to be awarded STeP by OEKO-TEX® certification based on their proven sustainable production conditions and social responsibility. The clearly defined objective of Covolan is sustainable development, which comprises the continuous improvement of quality and productivity, a reduction in the use of natural resources and minimization of waste generation. Given the increasing awareness of increased product safety for clothing textiles, Covolan was quick to take this opportunity to have their manufactured fabrics inspected in accordance with the human-ecological requirements of the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. “With the certification of all of our articles in accordance with the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, we can offer our customers reliability; with the STeP by OEKO-TEX® certification, we can demonstrate responsibility.” Frederico Maziero, Covolan Industrial Director commented.
