VAUDE manufacturers a very high proportion of bluesign® system certified materials in the collection. These are indicated in the description of the article in our online shop and in all ordering documents.
The new bluesign® system rules no longer permit a bluesign label / product hangtag to be directly on the product. VAUDE therefore eliminated the use of this label starting with the Winter 2015 Collection. All VAUDE products that meet the Green Shape criteria are instead provided with the Green Shape hangtag: bluesign® approved materials are allowed for Green Shape.
VAUDE designated a very high proportion of the materials used in our products, in particular all primary materials. This means that we tell our producers which materials it should purchase from which suppliers. Our producers purchase a few materials such as yarns, bands, linings, buttons, etc. independently. To calculate the total number of our material suppliers, we calculate an average with an undesignated supplier for each product area. Overlaps in several product areas occur.

Starting with the Winter Collection 2015, we once again revised the Green Shape criteria:
The "competition" through these other standards and certifications in VAUDE product development means that the calculated proportion of bluesign® system in the clothing collection is becoming smaller.
