Why Your Fashion Labels Are Important and The Best Labels for Your Clothes to Have
Every product you purchase comes with a label. Labels are meant not just for
recognition in a marketing sense but also serve as proof of brand quality when you
purchase their product. Many companies understand the importance of a good label
associated with their items and have now made the art of the label another entire
industry of its own. Placement, prominence, and material are all key components in how
fashionable a product may be perceived. For example, a pair of shoes with unblemished
labels serve as a sign of how well kept the wearer keeps their belongings. Labels are as
much a part of a brand as the rest of the usable product.
The two most important types of labels are woven and leather for clothing and
accessories. Each type serves its own purposes, outlined below:
With a woven label, the best products have one sewn on either by hand or machine,
depending on how well-made the product is. These labels have a varying degree of
thread count; the higher the thread count, the smoother it will feel, but the longer it will
also take to produce. To make a label like this, a base material of polyester or cotton is
used, and then the print is applied to it.
Woven labels are a popular choice because they can be used on almost any type of
clothing, including hats and bags. Their appeal also comes from being usable for
promotional items and other products that don’t require the same level of security as
security tags do. They’re also easier to clean than screen-printed labels because they
don’t have any ink or dyes that could rub off on your clothing. You’ll be able to tell the
quality of your product by how well this label type interacts with you inside the product.
A key difference to the second major label type.
Leather labels are made of high-quality, water-resistant leather that is hand cut and
sewn to form a strong label with a leather tie. Leather serves as more of a tag function
on products than a label, and acts as more of a professional touch to high-end products
than something hidden away inside.
While these labels can be used as the mark of a professional, they also run a slippery
slope. The versatility and prominence of a leather label – from handbags to wallets,
keychains to backpacks, laptops and tablets – means a visible label can be seen on
many products, and not all of them will be good ones. Of course, there will be
differences in how the leather is crafted and a more well-made label to an outdoor
equipment connoisseur can have an entirely different meaning to a city slicker.
But this works both ways. These labels can be attached to handbags, shoes and belts
that you wear, while others use them to label their luggage. So while a certain product
may have an impressive label already associated, someone could also spruce up what
they’re wearing or using with a better label – made of leather and ready to show it off.
While labels may not be what makes-or-breaks a fashion ensemble, they most certainly
have a role to play in the things we wear. Keep an eye out for the tags and labels you’re
wearing and see how your wardrobe stacks up.
