FACTS

For Association Contract Textiles - The Facts icon indicates that a textile has been evaluated by an independent third party certification body, authorized by the Association for Contract Textiles, according to the requirements of the multi-attribute sustainability standard NSF/ANSE 336.  The comprehensive examination for Facts assesses both the composition of textiles and the process by which they are manufactured.  Once a textile becomes Facts compliant, it can achieve a Facts Silver, Gold or Platinum rating by earning points for additional sustainability criteria.
