The Triman symbol and sorting information must be physically present at the point of sale. These can be displayed on different media, including the textile label showing the fibre composition, on the temporary label (such as stickers or hangtags), printed or embroidered onto the product, on the packaging in which the product is sold to customers (name tag, box, bag, etc.). The symbol can be used horizontally or vertically. 

All clothing, household linen and footwear products sold in France must bear the Triman symbol and sorting information starting from February 1, 2023 (or August 1, 2023 for products manufactured or imported before February 1, 2023).
