It looks like you are correct. I had thought everything was organic but that only some of it was certified to an even stricter standard (Öko-Tex).
This info is from their website:http://www.hannaandersson.com/aboutHanna.asp?pg=172
"Organic Cotton – as pure as we can make it Our long johns, turtlenecks and many baby hannas are now made from 100% organic cotton that's grown without harmful chemicals!
... What's more, (some of??) our organic products are also certified by Öko-Tex. What's that?
Here in America, we're pioneers in embracing a European ecological certification process called Öko-Tex Standard 100. In order for a garment to be certified, every fabric, button, thread and zipper is rigorously tested for over 100 potentially harmful substances, and the result is especially easy on children's skin."
The sizing page of their catalogue is clearer, it specifically says "Nearly 60% of all our clothes are certified, and we're working on more all the time. With organic cotton and Oko-Tex hannas are as pure as we can make them for families.
I think this last sentence is what gave me the impression that for Hanna "organic" and "Oko-Tex certified" aren't synonymous, but based on the above info from their website, apparently they are. Yet I'm still confused because I'm looking at their Winter 2007 catalogue on page 11, at the "Organic Cotton Turtlenecks", but there is no Oko-Tex notation.
