German term or phrase:appreturfrei
Context: textiles. Marker pens should not be used on T-shirts described thus.
Explanation: I am guessing . appretur is apre-finishing and frei may be discontinous finishing or piece finishing, since in T-shirts "piece finishing" is used , but I do not know totaly "opposite " is possible that is by frei might mean "continous " since frei means some similar words as well.

There are a number of finishes, for instance "Appreturwaschechtheit" which is translated by my textiles dictionary as "finish washfastness". These are treatments either of the fiber or the cloth, so as to give it certain finishing properties, also including colour.
