You’ve certainly stumbled across the additional clause “”this article contains non-textile parts of animal origin”” from time to time.
But what does that actually mean?
In addition to material identification, the European Textile Labelling Ordinance also requires “”non-textile parts of animal origin”” to be designated on the product’s care label.
These can be, for example, labels made of leather, down fillings or buttons made of mother-of-pearl or horn.
We of course already offer a large selection of articles which do not contain animal parts. Some articles may look as if, for example, their buttons were made of horn, but ultimately it is only a material which is made to look like horn.
The transparent labelling system should make it easier for you to make informed purchase decisions.
