Validation: Safeguard Your Garment and Boost Sales

Garment letters are apparel registration certificates that apply exclusively to the sample(s) submitted for testing. Letters verify the specification of your garment and fabric for proof that your products contain genuine LYCRA® fibers purchased from certified suppliers from our trusted global network of mills, instead of generic spandex (elastane).

Garment letters should be requested by fabric or garment suppliers for bulk shipments separate from fabric sample requests to ensure all the products in the bulk shipments use the same manufacturing processes.

Only garments made with genuine LYCRA® fibers are eligible for orders and use of our LYCRA® brand hang tags and point-of-sale (POS) assets to boost sales.
