You can find a small tag on your clothes with recommendations of how to take care and wash your clothes right. Usually it is a small tag with some information of fabric content (in percent) and right carrying for garment. This information helps to use the garment longer. For most people these small symbols are not understandable, however a modern customer has to know the symbols well.
