Statement of Compliance

Witzend Fabric Designs – Statement of Compliance

Textiles sold in Canada must meet certain regulations. Our Cotton Lycra fabric is digitally printed with reactive dye which meets or exceeds the requirements.

As outlined by the CCPSC (CANADA CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY ACT) under Textile Flammability Regulations; All fabric with a non-raised surface must have a flame spread time greater then 3.5 seconds when using the 45-degree testing method. The certificate we have obtained from our supplier shows a 15.1 second giving it a class 1 rating where 3 is the worst and 1 is the best.

As outlined by the CCPSC under the section for consumer products containing lead; Each accessible part of a consumer product containing lead must not contain more than 90 mg/kg of lead. Our supplier has tested the fabric for lead and the test results showed that no lead was detected.

The testing also covered Formaldehyde and the result was that no Formaldehyde was detected in the test sample. A copy of the lab report can be emailed to you upon your request (in writing by email to info@witzendfabricdesgins.com)

Cotton Lycra fabric is Exempt from testing in the USA as it meets the following 2 specifications as per the CPSIA/CPSC:

(1) Plain surface fabrics, regardless of fiber content, weighing 2.6 ounces per square yard or more;

(2) Textiles (excluding after-treatment applications, including screen prints, transfers, decals, or other prints) consisting of:
