It is a legal obligation for retailers to attach wash care labels to every garment, but how can you ensure that care labelling won’t slow your supply chain down?
Over the last few decades, the amount of information required on care labels has changed dramatically. Country of origin information and care instructions are legal requirements in many countries, and retailers often require a large amount of point of sale information including style numbers and size. This data must be fixed permanently in the garment, often in multiple languages. Wash care labels aren’t just there to tick a box.
