Suzhou Deylon, Shangdong Lawrance Earn Oeko-Tex® Standard 100plus Certification

Suzhou Deylon Textile Co. Ltd. and Shangdong Lawrance Textiles Co. Ltd. -- China-based producers of ready-to-wear apparel, and subsidiaries of Saudi Arabia-based investor Ajlan & Bros. -- have become the first companies in Asia to earn Oeko-Tex® Standard 100plus certification for their products. To receive the certification, a company's product must be free of harmful substances according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and must be manufactured in environmentally-friendly facilities that apply socially responsible policies according to Oeko-Tex Standard 1000. Testex®, the Switzerland-based Swiss Textile Testing Institute, performed third-party testing of Suzhou Deylon's and Shangdong Lawrance's products and facilities.

Suzhou Deylon specializes in producing the yashmagh and ghuttra, traditional Arab headwear. Shangdong Lawrance manufactures outerwear and undergarments for the Asian and European markets. There are currently three companies in the world whose ready-to-wear products are Oeko-Tex Standard 100plus-certified.
