What we offer

We give top marks for skin sensory comfort

For two decades now, the Hohenstein Institute has been testing how textiles feel when they are in contact with the skin. Our test methods have been validated in wearing tests with volunteers, enabling us to give an objective evaluation of subjective sensations. This provides you with an overview of how your product feels and how it could be improved. Our expertise in this field is quite unique. A mark is assigned to show how well your textile performed in the skin sensory comfort testing.

This assessment is shown on our "Skin sensorial comfort vote" quality label, providing consumers with reliable guidance when evaluating how a textile will feel on the skin, before they have even worn the product.

Skin sensory testing is particularly suitable for the following products:
  • Underwear
  • Sleepwear
  • Pullovers
  • T-shirts
  • Wellness textiles
  • Bathrobes
  • Towels
  • Bed-linen
