Expert detects ambiguity in clothing labels

Apr '10
As per reports, South African big and small clothing retailers may have violated laws by giving the correct information to the consumer on labels sewn on their goods. This was revealed during an inspection done by noted textile researcher and apparel development specialist, Renato Palmi.

To address the anomaly, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is contemplating to set up a taskforce to look in to the issue. According to Renato Palmi, most of the items of clothing did not display the source of the textiles from which the apparels were produced.

As per the findings of Renalto Palmi, the source of the fabric or whether the textiles used were domestically manufactured or imported could not be ascertained on the labels, although they carried the 'Made in South Africa' mark.

As per a regulation enacted in 2008, all South African items of merchandise are supposed to carry a label indicating the country of origin of the finished goods, fibre content, care instructions and whether imported textiles were used to make them.
