Did you know...

Back in the days of true Haute Couture in Paris, the signature labels (griffes) of garments aka clothing tags were never to be sewn into the garments until their final fittings as tradition. It was the House of Couture's last kiss. To sew in a griffe before its time was to condemn a workroom to badluck. It was a serious superstition in those days.

In the 1920s, couturiere Madeline Vionnet stamped her thumbprint on clothing labels to provide authenticity.
Manufacturers today, turn to product fingerprint technology to detect fakes
