Bluesign® System Partnership
The fact that Wolford’s production process meets the highest global standards for sustainability in the textile industry is proved by the partnership concluded in April 2015 with bluesign® technologies AG, a globally active network. Its system stands for safe textiles, environmentally compatible production and the prudent use of natural resources.
In this regard the focus is not only on evaluating individual end products, as is the case at many eco-labels, but also on ensuring transparency along the entire textile value chain. After Wolford underwent an elaborate auditing process in the 2014/15 financial year, the company became the world’s very first manufacturer of tights which can call itself a systems partner of bluesign®. Furthermore, all legwear products knitted and dyed by Wolford on a cotton or polyamide basis for its Essentials collection have been granted the “bluesign® approved” status. This certification was renewed once again in 2017.
