Our in-house Quality Assurance department for “fashion”
Trust is good, control is better: even though we only work with selected, trustworthy suppliers, each item of clothing is carefully tested by our in-house Quality Assurance department before entering our product range. Even the initial design process for a new item of clothing is accompanied by Quality Assurance, right up to when samples are ready for production. Certificates are obtained and processing guidelines issued. When we receive the samples (in three sizes!) from our suppliers, we inspect them carefully: Are the dimensions correct? Does the button fit through the hole and does a diaper bottom fit in the bodysuit? We wash and dry the products over and over again so that we can provide reliable care symbols and washing tips. To monitor production by our suppliers in Europe, the Baltic States, Turkey and China, two technicians are on the road for eight months of the year to satisfy themselves that products are manufactured correctly and that our working and environmental standards are met. In Bad Rodach our Quality Assurance staff also carry out extensive intermediate checks. This means that the process from design to a finished collection takes a good six months. So much quality has its price – but keeps its promise for many years to come!
Our in-house Quality Assurance department for our “own hardware products”
Thanks to this strict quality testing process, we guarantee that our products comply with the European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC, the German Product Safety Act (Produktsicherheitsgesetz) and the German Food and Feed Code (Lebensmittel- und Futtermittelgesetzbuch) for all products that come into contact with food.
