Proudly Canadian. Supplying Tomorrow's Fabrics Today Since 1953.


Garment producers are responsible for ensuring that their garments meet flammability guidelines.  This is true for all apparel but especially true for children's wear. 

There are a number of textiles that have been deemed exempt from testing because of consistent positive results. 

Here's an excerpt from the  - US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)Wearing Apparel Regulatory Summary regarding these exemptions:

"Years of flammability testing has shown that the following fabrics consistently pass as Class 1 textiles and are exempt from the reasonable and representative testing requirements for firms issuing a flammability guaranty on these fabrics:
(1) plain surface fabrics, regardless of fiber content, weighing 2.6 ounces per square yard or more; and
(2) all fabrics (both plain surface and raised-fiber surface) regardless of weight, made entirely from any of the following fibers or entirely from a combination of these fibers: acrylic, modacrylic, nylon, olefin, polyester, and wool."


KenDor does not warranty that fabrics will meet your specific testing requirements.  Please ensure that you review your garments carefully and test as needed.
