Qtec is a large Japanese textile assessments center that regularly checks our textiles. This way we can verify that no contaminations have happened at any stage of the production or transport and also check the material quality. The last point is especially important, and we are proud f it, because natural dyes are often not very color fast. Aizome Bedding, however, is scoring higher than most chemical dyes. The test reports show that e have Zero chemical contaminations and score high in all color fastness criteria. You can dowload the latest report here.
