FAQs about OEKO-TEX® and Lene Bjerre:

What is OEKO-TEX®?

OEKO-TEX® is a certificate that is given to textiles that are produced with no harmful chemicals. It means that the producers should comply with a long series of requirements about how they manufacture their textiles. They are not allowed to use pesticides, chemical residues, or heavy metals.

What does OEKO-TEX® mean to your home decorations?

By choosing home textiles that are OEKO-TEX® certified, you ensure that you can decorate a home with good consciousness. Your textiles such as cushions, tablecloth or curtains are therefore not treated with any harmful chemicals. You also make sure that the textiles are manufactured under good working conditions.

Why is OEKO-TEX® important to Lene Bjerre?

Because an OEKO-TEX® certificate on our textiles means that our producer ensures that every worker has good working conditions and access to a fair salary. OEKO-TEX® producers also prioritize equality among the workers and of course that no harmful chemicals are used in the production.

Why should an inner cushion have an OEKO-TEX® certificate?

At Lene Bjerre, we have chosen to certify all our inner cushions under our cushion cases with an OEKO-TEX® certificate. An OEKO-TEX® certified inner cushion has many benefits compared to regular inner cushions. Most importantly our inner cushions have not been treated with any harmful chemicals.

Is an OEKO-TEX® towel better for my skin?

As an OEKO-TEX® certified towel complies with all of the requirements of not using any harmful chemicals in the production, your skin will not get exposed to chemicals that may cause skin irritation. And the towel is still as soft as a non-certified one or even more.

What are the OEKO-TEX® inner cushions from Lene Bjerre made of?

All OEKO-TEX® inner cushions are filled with duck feathers and the case is made of 100% cotton. This makes the cushion very soft under the stunning cushion case.
