Confidence in textiles

For pro-active sustainable product development.


Sustainable Textile Production — STeP — is the new OEKO-TEX® certification system for brands, retail companies and manufacturers from the textile chain who want to communicate their achievements regarding sustainable production to the public in a transparent, credible and clear manner. As market leader, we want more than high quality products. We also want our production processes to be sustainable.

We are the first PPE manufacturing company to receive a STeP certification. The audit revealed that Sioen Apparel complies with the highest requirements of STeP by the OEKO-TEX® standard level 3 in regard to our structures, processes and management systems.
