What are the labeling requirements for apparel?

AAFA has created a labeling matrix to aid members in navigating specific apparel and footwear labeling regulations. AAFA’s International Apparel & Footwear Labeling Matrix provides a general overview of the mandatory labeling requirements for adult apparel and footwear in 47 countries. This member-only resource is a direct response to input from AAFA members who have and are seeking to expand their business internationally and may need additional help navigating international labeling requirements.  

Label requirements for textiles and apparel at the point of sale include labels containing fiber content, country of origin, the identification of the manufacturer, importer, or other dealer, and care instructions. Labels containing care instructions must be attached permanently to the item. Apparel products that contain wool, leather, or fur have additional requirements that can be found here on the FTC website.
