The best underwear is GOTS certified!
Engel as a family-owned company has been making underwear and clothing for 85 years. By using untreated cotton in 1982 the company started to concentrate on natural textiles in an exemplary and consistent way.
Today, their collection covers underwear and clothing for babies and kids, underwear for adults, a small range of outerwear in pure merino wool or merino wool and silk for children and adults, fleece and boiled wool clothing in soft, cosy merino wool for babies and children, fleece clothing for adults and specially developed garments for prematures baby.
Our underwear is manufactured in Germany according the highest ecological and social criteria. Our short transport routes not only protect the environment – they also allow continuous quality management and guarantee fast, reliable, complete delivery as promised.
Most products bear the quality seal NATURTEXTIL- IVN ZERTIFIZIERT BEST or the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). You will find the product label including the licence number on the product itself.
As a founding member of what is now the Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e.V. (IVN), and co-initiator of the Global International Textile Standard (GOTS) we are still committed to high ecological and social quality standards. Engel is one of the first 27 German companies to be certified according to ”Grüner Knopf” criteria.
Besides organic cotton Engel uses the finest organic merino virgin wool and natural organic merino virgin wool with silk. All the dyestuffs we use are free from heavy metals and have always been free from harmful AZO-dye. For coloring our woolen textiles we use only reactive dye, which compounds particularly well with fibre and stands out for its excellent fastness. Engel abstain from any kind of chemical finishing with our textile processing.
