The Silk Mark Organisation of India (SMOI) recently set up nine testing centres in prime retail hubs in Bengaluru to ensure silk quality. The organisation has introduced `Silk Mark’, a system to quickly and conveniently test the purity of silk by trained personnel. The instant tests do not disturb the structure of the garments and will cost ₹20 per test.

Consumers can benefit from purity tests like flame test and microscopic test, and an invoice and a sample test report are given after the test, a press release from SMOI quoted K M Hanumantharayappa, chairman, Central Silk Board (CSB) and SMOI, as saying.

SMOI, a registered society under the Karnataka Society Act 1960, is an initiative of CSB and the ministry of textiles. The Silk Mark labels are in the form of paper hangtags and sew-in labels. (DS)
