Oeko-Tex standard

Cf. Made in Green by Oeko-Tex
The Oeko-Tex standard is an independent testing and certification system for textile products. In 2000, ETERNA became the first clothing company worldwide to be certified with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 plus label, signalling that the products are tested against pollutants and manufactured in an environmentally-friendly manner complying with strict social standards. In 2015, the Oeko-Tex standard 100 plus was replaced by the 'Made in Green by Oeko-Tex' label. As before, the label marks products at all stages of the textile chain that were produced from pollutant-tested materials by means of environmentally-friendly processes under secure and socially responsible working conditions. In addition, any consumer can transparently trace an item marked certified with the 'Made in Green' label at any time by means of a unique product or a QR code.

 

Oversized

The term 'oversized' refers to clothing items deliberately designed to appear as too large, i.e. very loosely cut garments. Oversized tops have a particularly casual look and can be combined very well with tight-fitting pants and skirts. Oversized blouses are very versatile and are suitable for any occasion.

 

Oxford

Oxford is the name of a strong colour-woven cotton fabric in a basket weave, which is a variation of plain weave. As the name suggests, this type of fabric comes from the British university town of the same name. Oxford is ideal for sporty shirts and is often used in conjunction with button-down collars. Its trademark feature is the large appearance of the weave which always uses double yarns. Oxford fabric is hard-wearing and soft, as well as being especially breathable.
