Smarter Clothing Care Labels

Coming from a fashion design background, I find it surprising 70% of people don’t read the care labels and when they do, it’s usually too late. That’s why something like the clothTag concept might make caring for clothes a lot easier.

Using RFID technology the tags can communicate with RFID enabled washers, dryers, irons, presses, and dry cleaning equipment. Settings are automatically adjusted. You do nothing out of the ordinary. Just load your clothes, add detergent, and shut the lid. The tag itself is cleverly designed to use the RFID circuitry to form the care icons we’re all used to.
