Neutral evaluation of textiles and clothing for leasing.

Whether workwear, personal protective equipment (PPE), uniforms, apparel or flat linen (table linen, bedding), textile and clothing rental is expanding in many industries because the renter has no capital investment or storage costs.

Service providers must provide high quality, durable textiles that do not show wear, even after several wash cycles. Develop products that can withstand the extra abuse and independently prove the suitability for this rapidly growing market.

Hohenstein Quality Standard 701ff.

Leasing textiles must meet high standards for mechanical characteristics, color fastness, fit, comfort and washability under industrial conditions. The Hohenstein Quality Standard 701ff defines all relevant aspects of leasing suitability of textiles for different application areas (ie. hospitals, nursing homes, food processing businesses, hotels and industry).
