Price, quality, and service are three primary elements that are carefully monitored at the Apparel Search Company.   If your company is equally concerned about quality assurance, you should educate yourself about Testing Methods, Human Rights, factory inspections etc.

The fashion that you create should always maintain high standards of quality.   In addition, you should utilize factories that meet international standards regarding safety, fair labor, human rights etc.

Quality assurance measures such as regular garment testing and periodic factory inspections should be standard practice for all members of the clothing industry.  The testing of clothing and factory inspection should be a regarded as one of the most important aspects of your business.

In an effort to assist garment manufacturers & retailers, the Apparel Search Quality Testing section has been created for the sole purpose of educating the clothing industry regarding testing & inspection. 

The Apparel Search Quality Testing section provides access to testing laboratories as well as test methods.   In addition to providing information regarding the testing of clothing and textiles, we also provide a directory for locating inspection services (services that specialize in clothing & textile market).
