Symbols for the care of textiles are used to mark products (clothing and others) made of textile materials. These symbols define the rules for processing products for their proper operation by consumers, and to prevent premature wear and deterioration.

Currently, these symbols are set by the international standard “ISO 3758: 2012. Textile products. Symbol care markers. ” There is an outdated, but valid in Russia, analogue of this standard - “GOST ISO 3758—2010. Textile products. Marking with care symbols. / ISO 3758: 2005. Textiles - Care labelling code using symbols (IDT) ”, published later than its original source.

Symbols are located on the product on a special label sewn to it. The location of the label with the symbols for care, the fibrous composition of the fabric and other possible information is regulated by GOST 10581–91 “Sewing products. Marking, packaging, transportation and storage. ”

You have probably noticed more than once that on some of your things there are many different shortcuts. On some clothes from even more than 5-6. But they are attached to your things for a reason. It's time to start paying attention to them and then your favorite sweaters and pants will last much longer!

This useful reminder will help you easily understand the meaning of the characters on the labels.
