In accordance with the regulation on textile product labelling, care labelling is OPTIONAL in Slovenia. Since textile products in Slovenia are only required to state the fibre composition of the product, care labelling provides additional information and helps consumers care for their product.
Labels used for indicating textile care are presented as pictograms and are determined in accordance with the SIST EN ISO 3758:2011 standard (Textiles – Care Labelling Code Using Symbols).
Care labelling is obligatory on textile products in the following EU countries: Austria, Bulgaria, The Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.
