The Design from Finland mark was launched in 2011 when it was recognized that design should be highlighted as a critical success factor for Finnish companies. The mark provides consumers in Finland and abroad with evidence of Finnish design excellence. Well-designed products and services are better to use, and consumers find them more desirable.
The Design from Finland mark may be awarded to any product or service designed in Finland, provided that the company has demonstrably invested in Finnish design.
The company’s head office must be in Finland. The product may be manufactured in Finland or abroad. For the detailed award criteria, consult the Design from Finland terms.
The right to use the Design from Finland mark is awarded upon application for a term of three years by an independent Design from Finland Committee with expertise in the field.
The Design from Finland mark has been awarded to hundreds of products and services.
Since its introduction in 1992, the central focus of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® has been the development of test criteria, limit values and test methods on a scientific basis.

With its decades of experience, the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, therefore, contributes to high and effective product safety from a consumer’s point of view.

Extensive product checks and regular company on-site visits also ensure that the industry has a globally sustainable awareness of the responsible use of chemicals. With this concept, the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® has taken on a pioneering role for many years.
