Junkers & Müllers, Monchengladbach, Germany, announced that all of its Mediatex textiles have been tested in line with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and received the label Textile Trust. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 has enabled textile manufacturers since 1992 to voluntarily test the human ecological characteristics of their products in order to obtain certification of compliance.

The textile institutes are internally recognized, independent, and work to a uniform standard worldwide. In recent years, the Oeko-Tex Standard has become the globally leading label for pollutant-tested textiles. The Textile Trust label means responsible textile manufacture, from the raw materials to the finished product. The use of phthalates, AZO compounds, formaldehyde, or extractable heavy metals is prohibited, and odor and emission of volatile components are tested.
