Overview: The material we use
Our products are made of various materials, here we present the fabrics and materials we use, describe their advantages and disadvantages and their uses.

Traffic light system:
For a quick overview, we have created a traffic light system, for each type of tissue which allows a rapid assessment. The ratings are divided into three levels: green (high /good), orange (average) and red (poor/low/bad). The markings are read as follows:
  • Green: Who values this attribut, will be pleased
  • Orange: It fulfills exactly the purpose that it should have. There are also materials which serve this purpose better, but also some who serve far worse
  • Red: If you have an increased focus on this this attributes value for the intended use, you should refrain from using (! Flammability exception here is of course an advantage if the value is bad!)
