Shatnez Laboratory and Alerts

Being careful of wearing clothing that may have “shatnez,” that is, a mixture of wool and linen materials, is very problematic in the modern age of world- wide suppliers and the rapid pace of change in the clothing industry. Essentially, certifying clothing as “Non-shatnez” today requires trained experts in fiber identification, knowledgeability in manufacturing methods, and staying up to date with the most current information available. Thus, our expert trained and certified testers provide this non-shatnez service, and inform the community through timely updates as changes occur in manufacturing and marketing of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing.
