At Iskriva, we have strived to find a manufacturer of silk pillowcases that would not only produce a visually perfect pillowcase for you, but also high-quality ones. Quality is a broad definition for many people, but in our case we have set ourselves the goal to provide our customers with products that do not contain hazardous substances and are friendly to people and the environment, in addition to providing only natural 100% silk. This is how we came to the manufacturer, who provided all our requirements, and also successfully passed the inspection of the content of harmful substances in order to reduce the risk to health as much as possible, and confirmed this with the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certificate.
Iskriva silk pillowcases are all certified withOEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certificate.
What is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certificate?
STANDARD 100 OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s most well-known labels for textiles that are tested for harmful substances, which means that they are safe products and customers can trust certified products. If the textile product bears the STANDARD 100 mark, you can be sure that every component of this product, ie every thread, button, zipper and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the product is therefore harmless in human ecological terms.
The tests have been carried out by independent partner institutes OEKO-TEX® since 1992 in more than 60 countries on the basis of an extensive catalog of OEKO-TEX® criteria. When testing, they take into account a number of regulated and unregulated substances that can be harmful to human health. In many cases, the limit values of the STANDARD 100 standard exceed national and international requirements. The catalog of criteria is updated at least once a year and supplemented with new scientific findings or legal requirements. The criteria for obtaining the certificate are high, especially when it comes to textile products that are in direct contact with the skin, such as our pillowcases.

Our products carry the certificate marked: BEHO 070288 TESTEX, which means that they have been tested in one of the branches of the Swiss TESTEX Institute, which was founded in 1846 as the “Silk Drying Institute” in Zurich. The tests provide reliable consumer protection, which means that the company also takes responsibility for society and the environment.
