Christian Audiger Jeans
Posted on Friday, July 10th
Description of Garment:
Jeans w/ Printed Design
Manufacturer: Christian Audiger
Care Label Instructions: "Machine Wash Cold, Tumble Dry Low"
Problem: The printed design was created by a process that is known as "heat transfer printing" The adhesive binder used in the application of the printed design failed when these jeans were laundered and dried in accordance with the care label instructions. This resulted in the separation (peeling) of the print from the fabric.
Responsibility: The manufacturer. The manufacturer used an adhesive binder that dissolved during the instructed laundering process
Recommendation: If these jeans fail when laundered as instructed by the care label, they should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.
Drycleaner/Launderer: Explain the potential serviceability issues to the customer. Since these jeans may prove to be unserviceable when processed by the care label instructions, a signed release of liability should be obtained prior to acceptance.
The NCA's Garment Analysis Laboratory examines thousands of garments every year for serviceability and FTC care labeling accuracy. The featured garment is a recurring item received for evaluation. We have included the name or trade name of the fabric, the manufacturer, the RN number, if available, and a brief description of the problem.
