Product description
Dark brown fully-lined skirt. The overlay is embroidered with brown and bronze-coloured paillettes and beads. The embroidery is in the shape of a large flower with rays of beads streaming from its petals. There are smaller flowers between the rays. The red label attached to the garment bears its brand in white print. The swing ticket is red and bears the brand of the article.
Risk
The product poses a chemical risk because it contains Hexavalent Chromium, in concentrations varying from 2.4 to 19.2 mg/kg. Given that Oeko Tex Standard 100 states that, to ensure optimum quality, total chromium content should be less than 1 mg/kg for children’s clothing and less than 2 mg/kg for all other clothing, regardless of whether it is in contact with the skin, and that Chromium VI should actually be below the detection threshold, a limit of 5 mg/kg of Chromium VI is a practical threshold beyond which there is a serious risk of allergic contact dermatitis.
