is a clothing label?
come in many forms and can be differentiated by the labels
fabric construction, label function, label shape etc. Their
are many different types of labels that are used on apparel
and fashion accessories. Some of which maintain legal
requirements (care & content labels) and other types of
labels are placed on the garments strictly for appearance or
as identification of the fashion brand.
of the most common uses of a garment label is to aid a
fashion designer develop brand recognition. The
clothing brand label is generally placed some where inside
the garment to identify the brand. Brand labels
are also often placed on the outside of clothes to make the
brand easily visible.
labels provide tracking information such as lot labels.
These are typically utilized to keep good record
of particular elements in the production process. For
example, if a company is manufacturing jeans in multiple
clothing factories, they may wish to add a lot label to help
identify each garment with a specific code. This will allow
the manufacturing company to track which facility produced
which garment. In other words, if four different denim jean
factories are sewing "Apparel Search Brand Jeans", we may
have each of the sewing factories use a unique lot label in
the garment produced at their facility. If we later
find that sewing had been done incorrectly, the lot label
will allow us to track back to figure out which of the four
facilities had produced that particular garment. Lot
labels are used for other purposes as well.
discussing labels, two primary label categories come to
mind. The "brand label" which allows the consumer to learn
the brand of the garment and the "care label" which provides
content information and details regarding the best way to
care for the garment during the cleaning process. The care
label is often referenced as the content label or washing
instruction label (as well as a few other terms). The care
label will also often times have the size of the garment.
Their are many rules and regulations regarding the use of
the care label. We suggest you read more at our
section. That section does not contain all of the rules,
but it may point you in the proper direction.
