The trace heavy metal contents of twenty four textile samples produced in Turkey have been determined by atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) after separation/preconcentration procedures including solid phase extraction and coprecipitation. The levels of the investigated ions in textile material were found to be below the values given by Oeko-Tex with some exceptions for lead and nickel for baby clothing.
