    Significance and Use

    This guide is intended for use as a reference to improve the understanding of the relationship between commercial name, fiber identification and geographical regions of fiber origins that make up the composition of textile products.

    This guide is intended to be used as a source of information only.

    Detailed analysis, to verify specific data related to the composition of a particular fiber, may be necessary.
