Apparel Labelling Requirements for US, EU & JP Markets

Clothing labels are an important element in fashion design, and they require more careful consideration than simply their placement on a garment. They are needed not only to comply with various country regulations but also to serve as a vital piece of information that consumers rely on. Your label must basically give clear instructions to help the customer care for the garment. At the same time, this will serve to help establish your brand identity.

While the garment label requirements of different countries are similar in that these regulations are all in place for consumer protection purposes, there are some important differences between these requirements that you’ll need to know about if you want to sell your products internationally.
