Try angle / clothing tag

Try angle
Try angle

Clothing tags nowadays use icons to show us what temperature we should iron. However, these icons are always too small for the elders to see and would fade easily after washed several times. Besides, it might not be easy to remember each icon’s meaning.
"Try angle" shows a new concept of clothing tags. It has two parts: one is made by normal fiber which shows the proper color to iron and the other is made by thermochromic fiber that changes its color according to the temperature. Try this angle before iron the cloth. When two colors match, it is time to iron the cloth. Thus, no more cloth would get burn again.
