        Care labels Why it’s important mister mann


        The Australian mandatory standard requires that textile products including clothing, textiles, furnishing and suede skins, leathers and furs must have adequate care labelling instructions in English attached to the item.
        The mandatory standard for care labelling for clothing and textiles applies to:

        household textiles
        piece goods made from textiles
        plastic coated fabrics
        suede skins
          Care symbols alone are not sufficient. However, extra information such as care symbols or instructions in other languages may be provided.
