To be better than others… you need mind, commitment and a good amount of experience. We have it all and have been delivering it for decades. Our secret of success: When it comes to your order, we have all strings in our hand – from start to finish. Our divisions work fast and efficiently and deliver full service at its best.
The quality standards of our products are most important for us. Within our production process we aim for quality in terms of usability, durability and most importantly health related aspects. Therefore, all phases of the production process at the production sites are screened, monitored and constantly improved by independent research institutes and experts.
In the producing countries, we are supported by local specialists with regards to the measures of quality assurance of our finished goods as well as conditions of production.
Furthermore, we draw random samples from our ongoing production to be sent to Germany for testing, mainly checking for pollutants, performing characteristics and security parameters.
We also extend our quality principle to our after sales service, as this plays a prominent role in our constant quality philosophy.
Sustainability is crucial in the home textiles sector as it involves water use, land use, a choice of materials, color chemistry, transportation, and human contact. Customers demand that products are not just safe for consumers, but also safe for the workers who produce them. Lomotex has been working on this for years. All articles are manufactured exclusively in production factories in which a social compliance audit has been conducted by independent institutes. In addition, Lomotex looks deeper into the supply chain. Most of the articles we sell carry the Oeko-Tex Made in Green label, which shows that not only the Tier 1 manufacturing facility has been environmentally audited, but also the Tier 2 dyehouse/printer.
For factories we work with, we collect signed Codes of Conduct, read through their social compliance audit reports, work with them only when they achieve certain grades, encourage factories to submit continuous improvement plans, collect wastewater test reports, environmental audit reports or certificates, and provide supply chain transparency to our customers. In this way, we are working hard to assess not only the general risks in the textile sector, but also potential harms in our specific supply chain.
If one of the production facilities falls short, Lomotex works with the factory to remediate any problems. Only in severe cases, like with forced labor, or when the factory is unresponsive to making any changes, would Lomotex sever the relationship. This is recommended by sustainable development advocates, as the way the whole industry can improve faster.
In the last few years Lomotex has seen its use of sustainable cotton increased, as it added BCI, CmiA, and OCS Blended articles to its sustainable cotton mix, along with the previously used GOTS. In addition, we worked with producers to bring post-consumer recycled GRS-certified polyester articles to market. Lomotex has achieved the following certifications: GOTS, GRS, and OCS, which involved a physical audit at our office.
We also increased the percentage of factories we work with, who are Oeko-Tex STeP certified. Since the Oeko-Tex Made in Green logo relies on both STeP and Oeko-Tex 100, this is above the industry norm, and ensures both a factory-level and product-level inspection.
Our commitment to upholding human rights in our supply chain is firmly established in our Lomotex Human Rights Mission Statement. Earlier in 2021, we saw the value of making this explicit in the Lomotex Producer Code of Conduct, integrating this into our vendor contracts. If there is a complaint in our supply chain, we are working with our largest customer, to make sure their grievance mechanism is posted throughout the Tier 1 producers. This grievance mechanism in the local language gives a process for how to report unresolved factory complaints.
As a general rule, we submit supply chain transparency documents to our customers, which inform them not only of the manufacturing factory, but the dyehouse/printer, weaver, and spinner as well. In addition, consumers can use the Oeko-Tex Made in Green ID number to see more clearly the supply chain for their purchase. We also submit the totals of conventional materials versus sustainable materials to the customer, so they can measure and manage their public sustainability commitments.
All of this informs our due diligence, risk assessment, and our processes for abating those risks. Lomotex works hard to satisfy our customers and walk with them on this journey to a more sustainable world.
Our aim is to provide our customers with the security of having purchased a good product, which meets absolutely all requirements.
