039 Textiles, hides/skins and leather

Nordic Ecolabelled textiles, hides/skins and leather fulfil a range of environmental, health and quality requirements. This means that requirements are set for the production of fibres and hides/skins, to the further treatment of the fibre and hide and onward to the finished textile or leather product. Recycled fibres may be included.

Both the production of the fibre and the use of chemicals during production are central to the criteria. By setting requirements for chemicals, through both limit values and the prohibition of a number of substances that are harmful to health and the environment, the criteria focus on reducing the environmental impact of the production and consider the health of both workers and consumers.

Requirements are also set for the quality of the textiles, through factors such as colour fastness and shrinkage.
