Above all we think about health.
The passion for sport and the continued investment into the research of new technologies and new fabrics has brought Erreà on a course to the forefront of innovation and product quality.
Erreà are the first and only team wear company in Europe to have obtained Oeko-Tex certification, the leading international institute for research and testing in the field of textile ecology. This certification, obtained in 2007, guarantees that Erreà products, which carry the label, do not release toxic or carcinogenic substances which are often used during the production of fabrics, and thereby attest to absolute safety and respect for health.
The attention and scrupulous control as to the origin of the raw materials allow, therefore, compliance with the most stringent European health standards.
Quality, innovative design and state of the art materials are the characteristics which distinguish all Erreà products.
We are PRODUCERS and completely dedicated to SERVICE.
We have adopted the principles of TOTAL QUALITY and continuous improvement and research, and they have become a cultural reality.
By “RAISING THE STANDARDS” in everything we do, we have become world-class and have created a sustainable and unparalleled competitive advantage.
Our focus on COMMUNICATION EXCELLENCE and information rich systems have enabled us to make informed, accurate and timely decisions.

The Errea Quality
OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 CERTIFICATE
This certification, issued by the International Institute which for more than 15 years has represented the worldwide reference point for research and testing of ecological textiles, assures that during use Erreà products do not release harmful or toxic substances in quantities higher than the limits laid down by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 which represents the highest ecological level in the world of textile products and associated accessories.
The certification assures that Erreà products passed the tests of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which include:
research on azoic dyes
research on carcinogenic and allergenic dyes
release of formaldehyde
research on chlorinated phenols
research on benzenes and chlorine-organic toluene
release of extractable heavy metals
verification of colour solidity
determination of the extracted water pH
research on the composed organostannicis (TBT e DBT)
Erreà constantly control every stage of the production process in order to guarantee the use of certified raw materials and the quality of the products.
Fabrics comply with the provisions of the production set forth by law no. 194/1999 (implementation of Directive 96/74/EC).
Fabrics are free from products containing formaldehyde and the presence of traces, if any, does not exceed the limits set forth by the Japanese regulation (Law 112 of 12/10/73). The molecules of formaldehyde can be absorbed when inhaled provoking irritation to the mucous membranes and the eyes, while cutaneous absorption provokes allergies and eczemas.
The fabrics have not been submitted to chemical treatments with any substances cited in the laws of the European Ministry of Heath issued on 10/04/92 and the successive modifications thereof. During production of the fabrics, these chemical elements are not used because, as with the case of Aromatic Amines which produce a highly intense colour, they are toxic and carcinogenic.
All Accessories are free of Nickel, proven to provoke allergies and eczema, as provided for in EU directive 76/769/CE and acknowledged in the legal decree on 21st March 2000 by Italian Ministry of Health.
“Harmful Substances Test”: The dyes used for the dyeing of fabrics respect all the requirements of European legislation, are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class II (products in direct contact with the skin) certified and do not contain azoic dyes.
The dyes used during the dyeing process and printing do not release carcinogenic aromatic amines in respect of European law 2002/61 CE. The dyes used for colouring our fabrics respect the skin, preventing the allergies and intolerances which are usually caused by azoic dyes.
All Erreà fabrics are Oeko-Tex certified and the control of this stems from the attention to detail when selecting the raw materials from which they are made and the tests to which they are subjected are extremely strenuous. We wish to guarantee for our clients a product which is always of the highest level and for this we impose upon our suppliers to respect our rigorous demands.
The tests to which our fabrics are normally subjected:
solidity and fastness
To artificial and natural light (colour cabinet)
To washing in water and dry cleaning (colour retention)
To sweat acid and alkaline (“spray test”)
Control of weight and structure (“Reinforcing”)
To rubbing and breakage (“Martindale” machine)
Of threads to pulling and snags (“pilling-snagging test”)
Testing of stitching
Testing of stretching/ironing
Testing of printing
for the fabrics used in shower jackets and coats
