Abstract

The quality and safety issue of textile products is always relevant for childrenʼs clothing, which has much more requirements than for adults. The requirements for comfort, practi­cality, quality, and safety of textile materials used in clothing production are essential. When choosing the fiber composition of materials for the manufacture of childrenʼs clothing, the focus is usually on natural fibers to avoid skin irritation of the child’s body. However, some manufacturers also use chemical, particularly synthetic fibers and textile fabrics based on them, due to their attractive cost and production efficiency. This may be the cause of a negative impact on the child’s health and well-being, complications in the formation of the body’s normal physiology, etc. Therefore, there is a need to assess the quality of products made of cotton, which are offered in the domestic market of childrenʼs goods. The aim of this article is to conduct a commodity assessment of clothing for new­borns, which is sold in the network of "Epicenter K" LLC, in accordance with quality and safety requirements. The research result is a commodity assess­ment of clothing samples for newborns. The comp­liance of the researched clothing samples for newborns with the current regulatory require­ments in terms of quality and safety indicators has been established. However, it was found that some samples did not comply with the product labeling requirements, making them unsuitable for recommendation for retail.
