Use of leased workwear and rented consumer apparel has increased, and so have the demands on these textiles to have a long service life and retain protective or performance functions. Special attention should be paid to mechanical characteristics, color fastness, fit, wear comfort and washability. In Hohenstein Quality Standard 701 to 709, we have defined relevant aspects of suitability for leasing so you can document the quality of your textiles for your customers. Purchasers of rental textiles can use the “Suitability for leasing” Hohenstein Quality Label as a 3rd party verified decision-making tool.
