For almost 20 years, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 has been acknowledged as the world's most comprehensive and verifiable method for ensuring that textile products and the supply chains that create them do not use hazardous chemicals such as pesticides, carcinogenic dye stuffs, heavy metals, or other concerning substances that can hurt people and damage the environment. The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is the most effective certification tool for “greening” the total textile supply chain. The certification can be applied to every phase of production, from fiber to fabric to finished products, confirming that all elements are free from harmful levels of dangerous substances.
Shakespeare velvet velour is 100% cotton, weighs 500g/m2 and meets flame retardant standards NFP-M1 * BS-2B. The wide range of rich colors and subtle draping make it a theater standard for main curtains or stage masking. The all cotton MoliÃ¨re drapes have a plush upright pile, weigh in at 600g/m2 and also meet the strict NFP-M1 * BS-2B flame retardant standards.
ShowTex undertook the certification process in response to recent green theater initiatives around the world and a growing interest in ecological products for the event and entertainment industry.
The announcement coincides with the publication of ShowTex's Environmental Policy Statement.
