All textile articles - such as clothing - you bring to the Dutch market, must have a label with information in Dutch. The Commodities Act Decree on Textile Articles (Warenwetbesluit textielproducten) indicates what information must be included on labels on clothing and textile fabrics. Clothing labels must include:
- the article’s composition
- the proportions of the various materials used
- if applicable, the presence of non-textile and animal parts in the article
You may only use the textile fibre names mentioned in Annex I of the European Textile Regulation on textile fibre names. You are not obliged to include laundry instructions in the textile products.
These requirements do not apply to custom-made clothing.
