apparel, think again. Slinn says consumers
are becoming more concerned with garment
testing to ensure their young wearers are free
from harm.
"They want to make sure that their little
ones look great, feel great and that they are
safe," she says. "We go to great lengths to
make sure that all of our products are tested
properly and manufactured under safe and
compliant conditions."
Mai says apparel decorators should do
their homework and due diligence to confirm compliance with government safety
standards when it comes to childrenswear.
"With the demand for childrenswear
growing, apparel decorators should consider purchasing from experienced and
established manufacturers that conduct
[Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)] compliance tests to ensure
their children's garments are safe and nonhazardous," she says. "At Kavio!, we take the
CPSC testing very seriously.
"All our products go through rigorous tests
to ensure that they are safe and compliant,"
she adds. "They are tested every year from accredited laboratories and results are updated
frequently on our website."
