ECARF Seal for the new category encasings

Around twelve percent of adults suffering from allergies are allergic to mites. Mites are inevitably to be found in mattresses, bed linens and textile floors as they are living from human dander. Their occurrence has nothing to do with lack of hygiene. Persons allergic to mites mainly react to the excretions of these microscopically small organisms. This may especially be a problem at night and significantly affects the sleep.


Allergy impermeable covers for mattresses, pillows and blankets provide an effective protection. These coverings, also called encasings are used underneath regular bed linens. The material and weave largely prevent any contact between mites and the person sleeping.


ECARF certificated, allergy friendly encasings provably reduce the allergy exposition just like our newest example Pillow Cover oft the company Euroallergy SLU.


Thousands of certificates have already been awarded since the first Seal of Approval in 2006. The Allergy Seal is awarded by the ECARF Foundation
