OrganoTex® is a water repellent technology that provides fabrics with durable protection against water, snow and water-based soiling.
Using nature's own chemistry
The OrganoTex® technology is based on nature's own chemistry, using plant-based catalysts to bind water repellent “fatty” molecules directly to the textile fibers. The plant-based catalysts create a 3D-structured fabric surface of “fatty” molecules, resulting in the OrganoTex® technology´s excellent performance. The 3D-structured fabric surface still feels smooth and its roughness is invisible to the eye, much like the surface of the Lotus flower's leaves.
The OrganoTex® technology provides fabrics with an excellent water repellency, which is highly durable and withstands numerous cycles of home laundry. It also protects fabrics from water-based soiling such as stains from red wine, coffee, ketchup, etc.

Highest sustainability standards
The OrganoTex® technology is free from fluorocarbons (e.g. PFOS, PFOA, etc) and other accumulative chemicals that negatively affect ecosystems. It is also free from hazardous chemicals, such as isocyanates that may cause respiratory problems. In addition OrganoTex® is readily biodegradable in accordance with OECD 301.
Attractive branding platform
Fabrics treated with the OrganoTex® technology are covered by an extensive quality assurance program comprising fabric performance, durability and various sustainability parameters. Quality assured textiles are offered an attractive branding platform that can be used to promote the environmentally friendly characteristics of OrganoTex®-treated textiles to consumers and retailers.
