A New Trustworthy Industry Standard for Performance Textiles and Footwear
Intertek High-Performance Mark is an instantly recognizable Mark for Quality, Safety and High-Performance to offer peace of mind to end-consumers in their purchase of high-performance products and provides added-value to brands, retailers and manufacturers for validating the high-performance features of your products.
How can you educate your customers that your high-performance products are of top quality so that they will then pay more for that premium performance? Without mandatory regulations, how can you showcase the fact that your products meet the industry commercial standard or even excel in performance among other similar products in the market?
The fashion world has been changing direction in recent decades as a result of innovative developments and technological evolution. It turns the “wants” of functional clothing into the “needs”. High-performance clothing is a way of using new technology to improve our lives.
The fact that there are no mandatory regulations in the global market to control the quality of high-performance textile products presents a challenge for manufacturers, suppliers and buyers when making manufacturing and sourcing decisions without the aid of standardized benchmarking.
As a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide with over 130 years of expertise,
Intertek works hard to support our customers in capturing the growth and opportunities in the high-performance textile markets. The launch of the Intertek High-Performance Mark Program meets the needs of trade and customers in establishing standardized quality requirements. We have created a common language for stakeholders to communicate using graphical tools and a standard that can be easily understood with a series of descriptors.
The Intertek High-Performance Mark Descriptors
Descriptors are graphical icons which describe the high-performance features of textile and footwear products, to be used next to the Intertek High-Performance Mark in a trade dressing.
