At the 28th IAF World Apparel Convention in Oporto, GINETEX will present its organisation and advantages to join as members or as global users. GINETEX, the International Association for Textile Care Labelling, was first founded in Paris 1963 following several International Symposiums for Textile Care Labelling at the end of the 1950‘s. GINETEX has a large number of national organisations as members. These organisations represent the textile and retailing industries and other interested parties concerned with textile care.
GINETEX has devised an internationally applicable care labelling system for textiles based on symbols. The pictograms used are registered trademarks in most countries and are the property of GINETEX. The care labelling system gives consumers and textile companies the correct information on the care treatment of textile products. The processes indicated by the symbols will avoid any irreversible damage to the product.
GINETEX defines and promotes the system of care labelling symbols and coordinates its technical background on an international level. The essential technical elements for its implementation are contained in technical regulations. The care labelling system is maintained to ensure that any new technical and ecological developments together with changes in consumer practices are taken into account.
