SGS comprehensive textile and fibre testing services help you meet the regulatory requirements for a wide range of finished products, materials and components.

We can ensure that the material you purchase has the right quality and fibre content. Our experienced fibre analysts are able to identify the different luxury fibres such as cashmere and mohair, as well as natural fibres including ramie, linen and hemp. To perform this analysis, our experts employ high-resolution microscopes, using the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) technique.

Each fibre test that we perform adheres to the appropriate defined standards and regulations, reducing your risk of non-compliance. We also complete these tests in accordance with your requirements, to make sure you meet your own contractual obligations.

Since our well-equipped laboratories are all accredited to reputable national schemes, you receive results that are independent and verifiable. We also have accreditations with the appropriate industry bodies, such as the Cashmere and Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute (CCMI) and the International Down and Feather Bureau (IDFB).

In addition, the geographical scope of our network means you can rely upon an efficient turnaround time for your test results and maximise the efficiency of your operations. And because we standardise our services and procedures, you can be sure of our accuracy and consistency – wherever you are in the world.
