All bedtek products are made in accordance with the Oeko-tex Standard 100, to ensure thatthey are checked and certified free from harmful substances. 

In Western Europe there is an increasing awareness of the relationship between textile production and related environmental issues. The media feeds this concern, in particular with regards to topics addressing harmful substances historically present in many textiles and their effects on human health. The Oeko-Tex 100 Standard comprehensively addresses the Human Ecology component of textile products. It evaluates and screens for any harmful substances present within processed textiles intended to come into contact with consumers. 


Textile and clothing producers are working successfully to design products so that no harmful substances are present in any significant amounts and to achieve this, a significant technological effort is required by industry. Manufacturers can work towards this goal by adopting recognized "environmentally friendly" methods such as the careful selection of dyes, optimization of the dye baths, chlorine free bleaching techniques, low formaldehyde finishing methods and by selecting pesticide-free and heavy metal-free materials. By employing these and other recognized methods, the results of these efforts are safe products, which pose no risk to the consumer.
