Textile Marking

According to the Textile Labeling Act, textile products containing at least 80% by weight of textile raw materials must be labeled.
In order to comply with this obligation, labels are attached to textile products which contain all necessary information regarding the material used and the place of manufacture.

myLabels offers companies the right solution, depending on the area of application. For marking from clothing till parachutes, our labels are successfully used.

With us, you can opt for printing labels yourself or for using our service and letting us accomplish the work for you.

Textile Label Requirements

The right label depends on various properties:

  • Material characteristics

  • Printability

  • Washability

PA Taffeta, PET Taffeta and PET Satin, our three standard materials, cover the most popular fields. For all other cases, we will determine the right material for you.

Benefit from our experience and allow us to advise you. Or request free material samples to assure yourself that the quality of our materials meets your expectations.
