The name "pure nature" is the aim of HABA's new series. Controlled organic farming produces the highest quality cottons for both the threads and the outer materials. All "pure nature" textiles are produced in accordance with the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards). The GOTS standards for organic textiles and the use of raw materials ensure safety not just for children but also for the environment. The polyester filling has been tested under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and certifies that "pure nature" products by HABA are hygienic and washable. (Fillings made of natural material have very poor drying quality, hence a greater risk of mold. Therefore polyester is preferred.) All "pure nature" products are tested by an independent CPSC accredited laboratory, LGA, that specifically control harmful substances. Our tests in Germany go far beyond the required standards to ensure the highest possible quality.
