Engel are a family-owned company that has been making underwear and clothing for 85 years.
Besides organic cotton Engel use the finest organic merino virgin wool and natural organic merino virgin wool with silk.
Wool is dirt-repellent and regenerates by airing. Wool laundry should be washed and rinsed very carefully in the wool cycle of your washing machine or by hand in lukewarm water, do not wring or rub, otherwise it will become matted.
All the dyestuffs used are free from heavy metals and have always been free from harmful AZO-dyes. For colouring woollen textiles they 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 in their textile processing.
All used agents should be bio-degradable and must not pollute soil, air and water. All the materials used are nickel-free, and the buttons are made from natural, renewable raw materials. In order to guarantee the high quality level certain requirements have to met such as: light fastness, resistance to spittle, fastness to perspiration, washing and shrinking.
Engel have these properties, along with the maximum residue limits for substances harmful to health and the environment, monitored at regular intervals by independent certified environmental laboratories and institutes.
Engel are committed to fair, safe employment for a fair wage, not only in their own company but throughout all the production stages.
Their sustainable production concept also includes generating the power they need from renewable energy sources, such as solar and hydraulic power.
The wool comes from Merino sheep in their natural environment, which are organically farmed and therefore live a healthy and stress-free life. The usage of pesticides is forbidden both on pastures and on animals.
