4 WOVEN LABELS
During the last year, Colombia’s garment manufacturing industry suffered a 22 percent drop in retail sales. This has been due to an increase in garment imports, which outpaced exports. The country’s apparel industry has also been forced to absorb net imports of Asian goods, contributing to a trade deficit.
As a result, the industry has been seeking higher duties on imported Asian garments. However, this could prove difficult if the government does not take a tougher line on anti-dumping measures.
The woven label is one of the most popular ways to add branding to clothing. The labels are made on an industrial loom and are a great way to distinguish one design or clothing line from another.
The label is usually imprinted inside the neck, or at the lower side seam. The longevity of a label depends on the quality of the ink and the cloth used to print it.
Aside from labels, there are other ways to enhance the look of your clothes. For instance, you can add artwork, a logo, or even a permanent adhesive backing. Aside from being a novelty, these can help you differentiate your products from your competitors.
The most important aspect of a label is its logo. A logo is important because it helps products depict your brand story. A name of the producer should also be included.
Similarly, a logo is the most important component of a woven label. A logo can be a flat image, raised lettering, or a combination of the two.
Another interesting aspect of a woven label is its design. A design can be as simple as a logo, or it can include raised lettering and a textured feel.
