The main points of the FTC Garment Care Rules are;
  • Fibre Content: for allergies, legal substances and quality issues
  • Garment Care Instructions: for safely maintaining the garment
  • Country of Origin: for taxation, duty and political issues
  • Manufacturer ID: for returns and fraud issue with cloned and forged garments

We have also put together a Care Symbol Guide and Translations for common garment care instructions.
