Home-, household and construction textiles

The INNOVATEXT comprehensive testing and certification system helps producers and retailers of home textiles in developing and marketing high quality towelling, blankets, pillows, upholstery fabrics etc.

For pillows, blankets and mattresses, we use various tests to identify objectively the comfort characteristics of a product and produce design guidelines for the different applications (summer/winter) and different user groups for bedding.

The Hohenstein Quality Label ranks the physiological parameters of the product in order to quantify its sleep comfort and shows it directly on the article.

The well-known Hohenstein Laboratory for down and feather analysis also offer all kinds of services for the testing of the filling and casing materials, as well as the complete product.  Our service include the identification of  the composition of the mixed materials and the type of feather, the density of the casing material, the filling capacity and air permeability and the microbiological status; the test fulfils the requirements of international and national standards and regulations.

Other services for household and domestic textiles include testing in line with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and the assessment of the quality of the materials and performance.

With specific laboratory tests we determine children's bedding for their flame-retardant capability or analyse the fibre migration in synthetic blankets.
