The Falke Women's TK2 Cool Trekking Socks - Blue Note has the following sustainability attributes...
The OEKO-TEX label covers several standards though the relevant ones to Tiso ranged products are: Standard 100, Leather Standard and Made in Green. The aim of OEKO-TEX standards is to guide consumers towards making sustainable purchasing decisions by considering every element of the product, not just the main fabric. So, this includes buttons, zips and threads etc. Standard 100 and Leather Standard certifies that textiles and leather products have been tested for harmful substances. Made in Green uses the same standards as Standard 100 or Leather Standard, but also ensures the produce has been manufactured in sustainable working conditions.

You may have heard of TENCEL, lyocell, REFIBRA and Lenzing thrown about all together, but what does it all mean?
Lenzing is the parent group who use wood from sustainable, renewable forests to produce ‘viscose’ fibre. Lenzing produces four types of fabric: LENZING, TENCEL, VEOCEL and ECOVERO. The difference is their application and use: LENZING is used more in workwear and packaging, TENCEL is used for predominantly for activewear, underwear and footwear, VEOCEL for face, cleaning and baby wipes, and ECOVERO for even more sustainable fabrics for fashion.
TENCEL is the most common Lenzing fabric you’ll see used in the outdoor industry. TENCEL is a brand name for lyocell fabric. REFIBRA technology takes cotton scraps from used clothes and factory floors and mixes it with TENCEL to give second life to waste. The production of TENCEL is a closed loop process - while it uses chemicals, 99% is recycled and continually used.
This brand manufactures over 80% of its products in the country of its headquarters, which has many benefits both for the environment and for workers. Local production means less CO2 emissions, more control over working conditions, and helps to boost the local economy.
This brand ensures that the factories they use have been third party audited but are not specifically partnered with a Non-Profit Organisation. This will be either BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) or SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which are social auditing methologies and reports but are not an accreditation. This means the brand has sourced factories who have passed an audit, so their worker rights, environmental impact and social compliance is up to scratch.
