Industry Standards

HFPA believes it is important to monitor and regulate the home textiles industry to ensure that only the highest quality products are manufactured and marked.

HFPA published a standard in 2013 for the makers of quality residential bath rugs to help them ensure that their customers receive the highest quality products. A standard for residential terry bath towels was published in 2011 and a standard for residential bed sheets was published in 2010.

The standards are available for HFPA Members free of charge.

Standards are available to nonmembers for a fee.  Email HFPA headquarters at [email protected] to obtain a copy.
