GREENSBORO, N.C. — May 20, 2015 — Cone Denim® has announced that its Cone Denim Jiaxing (CDJ) facility has received OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification on selected denim products. Located in the Zhejiang Province, the CDJ facility is a state-of-the- art vertically integrated denim fabric operation known for its performance and premium denims.
OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification provides transparency in the textile supply chain and assures consumers that certified products have been produced without the use of illegal, regulated or other known harmful substances.
