Commenting on the recent article, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling says that while the lack of a rule necessitating that designers include information on textile chemicals may be disheartening to some customers, designers have the ability to win those customers over by being proactive about their own labeling.

The material type is not the only aspect of fabrics that may cause issues with allergies.

Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that there are two main reasons why a shopper may want to see this type of information on a label.

According to an article published July 9 by Public Radio International, clothing designers are not required to disclose the chemicals used in the manufacturing process that may be found in trace amounts when that clothing is displayed in stores. The article notes that, while all clothing makers must include a fabric label with information about what fabrics are contained in each item of clothing, there is no rule making them say what those fabrics are treated with. According to Los Angeles label maker Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc., while no clothing company is required to disclose what chemicals they may use, it could be advantageous for a company to promote what chemicals they do not use. As more and more consumers turn to products that are billed as more natural and organic, says Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, the ability to advertise this quality is increasing in value every day. Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that there are two main reasons why a shopper may want to see this type of information on a label:

  • Allergens – Many of the allergic skin reactions that occur when people wear particular items of clothing can be attributed to the specific type of fabric that the clothes are made of, notes Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling. Yet, it is also true that specific chemicals used to treat typically inconspicuous fabrics can also cause these reactions. By specifying that the fabrics used in their clothing is organic or free of certain chemicals, says Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc., allergic customers can be sure that the clothing that they’re buying is right for them.
  • Environmental Concerns – Fabrics that are not treated with chemicals are also often better for the environment depending on how the manufacturing process is handled, notes Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling. If this is the case with a certain company’s product, they would be remiss to not let customers know that they are benefiting the environment by using satin, polyester, or Tyvek labels.

Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that, while it is the obligation of the clothing or fabric manufacturer to make sure that their fabrics are free of certain chemicals, companies can rely on Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling to provide them with a unique and informative custom label.
