Home textiles are woven fabrics, natural or synthetic fibers, or clothing materials that are manufactured to be utilized for home furnishings such as household linens, draperies, bedding, curtains, wall coverings, upholstery, carpets and rugs. Production of home textiles involves the manufacturing of the fiber, spinning of yarns, fabricating cloth, dyeing, and printing.
InTouch is one of the leading companies for inspection and quality control standard development when it comes to home textiles. This includes a wide range of products, such as curtains, bedding, pillows, cushions, pet beds, bathroom textiles, rugs, carpet, and more.
In development of our inspection protocols and quality control standards, we take into account a wide range of information, including some of these well-known international standards: Oeko-Tex Oeko-Tex an international testing and certification system for home textiles, limiting the use of certain chemicals.
