Product Labelling: aa052298

An important and not to be overlooked part of getting your handwovens ready for sale is the labeling of your products. Hang tags can be used for some articles, others require that the information be securely sewn onto the product.

If you are needing small quantities of labels, blank business cards can be purchased from a stationery store and designed on your computer and printed on your printer. If you need larger quantities or wish a more professional look, have them done by a printer. While you are having your business cards printed, have the hang tags done as well. Do check the proof carefully, before approving the final printing.

I live in Canada, but export some products to the U.S. I contacted the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and obtained the Rules and Regulations for labeling of textile products. If you are exporting to other countries, you will have to contact the appropriate agency to determine specific labeling requirements. The label must include the name of the manufacturer, where the product was made, the fiber content, in % by weight, and full washing and care instructions.

For clothing, the label must be attached in the neck of the garment. For other textile products, the label has to be attached to a conspicuous place. If you have specific questions regarding how to label your product, contact the Federal Trade Commission.

Federal Trade Commission

The Federal Trade Commission works for consumer protection and a competitive marketplace and has guidelines and information about textile, wool and fur matters.
