Uniform positioning of labels

The purpose of labels is to inform consumers so far as the purchase and care of articles are concerned and professional cleaners. These labels must be easy to find and be securely and lastingly fastened.
Although it would have been more practical to limit ourselves to only one labelling spot for each article, the various types of manufacturing and materials, as well as the changes in fashion make it necessary to have a choice of various spots in certain cases.

Quality of labels

For the production of labels it is recommended to use material and thread which do not reduce the wearing properties of the article or irritate the consumers while they are wearing it. Otherwise they will easily cut it off.
