Tested to work
- Both a slogan and way of working
Tested to work is not just a slogan; it is the most important company value at
MASCOT. It is the way we work and the way we strategically assess things. Behind
Tested to work are two main principles: first, to do things carefully and correctly based
on a proven understanding and second, to have a strong focus on how the solution is
relevant and easy to apply to the target group.
In practice, this company value is reflected in all areas of our work. We aim to be
Tested to work in all stages of production, service and appearance. We implement
strict control policies from raw materials and dyeing to sewing and shipping.
Suppliers, sewing factories and distributors are continuously monitored and we have
stringent requirements for our partners.

during the course of development. We send the workwear
to work with the professionals. The workwear is used for
a period of time in authentic work situations and exposed
to natural wear and regular washing. Everything from fit to
functions are tested.
When MASCOT finds and selects fabrics it happens on the
basis of a number of physical and chemical tests that are
carried out on several standardised machines in MASCOT’s
own laboratories in both Denmark and Vietnam. It is to
ensure the quality of, for example, the products’ wear
resistance, tearing and tensile strength of the raw
material, purity of colour, shrinkage, stability of dimension
and weight. When the final fabrics are delivered to the raw
material storage, all products are screened with a powerful
light in order to localise any possible loom errors prior to
