Certificates

It is particularly important to us that all materials used are regularly checked for possible pollutants by independent testing institutes! The tests are carried out taking into account the guidelines of the International Association of the Natural Textile Industry (IVN) and the guidelines of the Austrian Ecolabel. It is our aim to produce a pram free of harmful substances.
