Clothes retailers - please can you add a polyester filter to your Search criteria? Ta

It's lovely being able to search by style, colour, price etc.

It would be bloody marvellous if you could filter out stuff that's mainly made of polyester too.

Maybe something like
'mainly cotton' (tick)
'mainly viscose' (tick)
'mainly flammable scratchy sweaty shitey polyester' (nooooooooo)

Many thanks.

PS extra points if you could filter out loud objectionable patterns too.

Oh! Yes please!

What an excellent idea.

Static-y acrylic knitwear - uncheck box

I've been dreaming of this too...

That would be fab! I was disgusted to see a 400quid polyester dress online today. Yes 400quid!!!! And there were some more expensive!

DD1 and me are allergic to wool and I hate polyester so a search by composition button would be great.

Also a leather lining button for sandals.

Great idea. But they never would. The amount of crap I've seen cooed over on here that's polyester - not cheap stuff either. I don't get it

What a fab idea! Also nylon (is it the same thing?)

I agree!! Wouldn't leave you much to look at at Zara, though. Think of the time you'd save while Internet shopping!

What would we rant about though? We'd never see the £400 (how much?!) polyester numbers.
And we'd never feel the dashed excitement of, 'ooh that's lovely .... Oh, polyester'.
And we'd save a lot of money, because we'd stop looking online and go and do something useful instead.

I was just thinking this yesterday, while I was on the Zara site.

Next's search results would say 'sorry, no products matching 'no polyester' have been found'

What a fab idea!

Startail Fri 03-May-13 15:19:18

Dear customer we have no sandals that won't stick to your feet, but at least you haven't wasted two hours looking.

(It's not going to happen sad)

One of the many reasons why I love Yoox.
