Victoria's Secret Tests For Snags With SnagPod®

KASnagColumbus, Ohio-based lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret — a segment of Limited Brands Inc., also based in Columbus — is using England-based James H. Heal & Co. Ltd.’s SnagPod® instrument to identify fabrics that are likely to snag.

The octagon-shaped SnagPod uses four snagging bars outfitted with pins that are inclined forward in the direction of rotation to catch on the surface of a garment. Four fabric samples are tested simultaneously through 2,000 revolutions in 30 minutes. The snagging-resistance tester is available as an additional test chamber for Heal’s ICI Pilling Tester or a later generation of its Orbitor pilling and snagging test system.

“With snagging, testing the correlation between test data and what actually happens in the marketplace with existing test methods has proved difficult,” said Glyn Raven, textile manager, Victoria’s Secret. “As we build a database, we hope to be in a position where we can relate anecdotal performance at the customer level and data from the SnagPod so that we can continue to deliver great products to the Victoria’s Secret brand.”
