These products include fabric diapers, handkerchiefs, napkins, toddlers' beaks, socks, gloves, woven clothing, crochet bedspreads, mosquito nets and seamless clothing. If a single package contains more than one item, you must specify the number of items and the description of these items that cannot be sold separately.

However, there are a range of products that are not subject to this label requirement. These products include a sanitary napkin, a sanitary napkin, a disposable diaper, a hair accessory, a fabric applique, a needle thread bag, a funeral product, a protective and safety device, an equestrian equipment, a textile used on an animal or a toy, a motorcycle cushion, a camping tent, a button, a hanger, a footwear, a felt cap, a book cover, belt, rope, flag, badge, tag, toy, umbrella, bag, suitcase, cleaning cloth, parachute, rental textile, some tablecloth, sun-shading curtain, furniture, wrist strap, fan, etc.
