Today, maintaining a high-quality product is a prerequisite to remain in business.
This comes naturally for Svensson as we have always produced only the best textiles.
The HortiQ certificate is awarded to companies following an audit of their internal processes, organisation and product quality. The audit criteria are based on the NEN standards as well as the standards that are defined in three quality manuals that have been produced by KviNL, the Dutch industry association for the quality of technical systems. As an independent certified body, KIWA performs the audits on companies. The certificate is valid for three years, with interim checks taking place annually.
A joint European environmental labelling scheme that involves a comprehensive approach to the entire product lifecycle, from raw materials to the product's usability. Most of our woollen upholstery fabrics are certified.

Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. In compliance with regulation (EC) nr.1907/2006 (REACH), the production and import of chemical substances of more than one tonne a year – or substances in products exceeding more than 0.1% – must be recorded in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) database. Svensson is what is known as a "downstream user." Users of chemicals are required to provide information about their use to the supplier of the chemical. We are also obliged to inform our customers.
We certify, in accordance with the directives of REACH, that our products are not, nor do they contain harmful substances that are, subject to registration in accordance with European Chemicals agency.
REACH is chemical legislation that replaces much of the rules relating to a chemical that applied before 1 June 2007 in the EU and Sweden. REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals.
Our product range is targeted towards professional interior design with extremely high standards in terms of design and quality. Our collections are made from natural materials and flame-retardant materials such as Trevira CS.

The abbreviation CS stands for comfort and safety in fabrics that are at the same time comfortable, safe and flame retardant according to the important international regulations on protection against fire.
