Laconia, NH – Each month, the Oeko-Tex® organization welcomes applications from companies around the world to be considered for its prestigious Company of the Month designation. Oeko-Tex, known for testing and rating  products that are created in eco-friendly environments --  and guaranteed to be certified  free from harmful substances --  chose Madeira as its Company of the Month for the month of October.

According to Oeko-Tex®, its Company of the Month campaign” is intended to highlight the many outstanding operations of the textile and clothing industry that distinguish themselves by human ecologically safe products and sustainable production conditions.”  If a company is Oeko-Tex® certified, it shows a special commitment in the areas of sustainability and social responsibility, it qualifies as an applicant. Which is why Madeira has earned a Class I certification for all of its major thread families, with   Oeko-Tex determining that from manufacturing process to finished embroidery thread, Madeira’s threads are judged to be  absolutely safe for use on each and every item, from factory to finished product - even for baby garments.
