More safety and efficiency in the textile chain


GermanFashion presents new cooperation in pollutant management


Apparel and textile products must be free of pollutants - consumers rightly demand that. Compliance with legal requirements is mandatory in many countries. At the same time, many companies are now moving further and increasing their influence for more sustainability and environmental protection in the complex supply chain.


"Clothing is constantly tested and closely monitored. But in many cases test laboratories do not offer the perfect service and the focus on the middle class, which our members need. This often leads to unnecessary testing, which causes loss of time and money, "explains Thomas Lange, Chief Executive of German Fashion.


Through the cooperation of German Fashion / Fashion Association Germany e. V. with the Eurofins WKS Labservice GmbH high and long-term textile expertise can now be combined with international and efficient laboratory services.

German Fashion Association Germany e.V. represents the interests of the German fashion industry, especially the manufacturers of women's and men's outerwear, sportswear and workwear.


The Eurofins WKS Labservice GmbH consists of the leading European specialist supplier of textile tasks WKS and the globally operating laboratory group Eurofins, with approx. 45,000 employees and 800 laboratories at locations e.g. in Europe, China, Vietnam, India and the USA.


In addition to textile tests, Eurofins WKS also carries out tests in other product groups in the network, such as toys, cosmetics, perfumes (accessories) and consumer goods, because many manufacturers have expanded their product range in recent years.


"Thanks to the cooperation with Eurofins WKS Labservice, we can offer our members a secure, cost-reduced, competent and international quality assurance service that does not exist so far - with experts who speak the language of clothing manufacturers," explains Thomas Lange.
