Global clothing brands fail quality tests
Mar '10
Chinese consumers are surprised to find that some world famous fashion and apparel brands covered with infinite aura, have failed when it comes to maintaining high standards of quality.

Zhejiang Industry and Commerce Bureau released its latest results of quality monitoring on imported garments, in which more than 30 world famous brands were found to have failed in quality tests taken from samples.

The brands which have failed the tests include, Hermes, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Paul & Shark, Hugo Boss and many others.

The authorities have informed the brands to take-off these products from the shelves, and a specific penalty notice will be sent to related brand dealers in the coming days.

Recently, the Zhejiang Industry and Commerce Bureau made quality monitoring on 85 batches of imported brand clothing sold in Hangzhou, Ningbo and Taizhou.

The results reveal that only 43.5 percent of the samples tested could pass the different tests. Most of the products tested have serious safety and quality problems of colour fastness, PH value and other issues.

It is learnt that the origins of these products are from 11 countries and regions, including Italy, Korea, France and Turkey. Product categories involve many categories, such as jeans, sweaters, T-shirts, knitted casual wear, slacks, cotton garment, skirts, etc.

It is reported that this sampling inspection found in the formaldehyde in washed jeans of brand Verri exceeded standards. In addition, fiber composition of a product of Versace did not match the labeling.
