Applicable Products: This standard applies to the garments produced with woven fabrics as the main fabric and down as the main filler. The other areas, such as zipper lines, pocket covers, hood, and collar can be filled with other fillings.
Product Classification: Lowest usable down label is 50%. Net Fill Weight of Finished products must be no less than -5.0% of claimed value. The apparel in this standard can be classified into three grades, (Superior, First Grade, and Passing). The classification depends on the fabric's quality and sewing workmanship.
