Material differences in Woven Labels

A lot of potential clients want to understand the difference between material types when considering a woven garment or accessory label. The three main material options are satin, taffeta and damask.

There are three main differences between the above mentioned. Appearance, feel and thread count. Thread count refers to the number of threads woven in a square inch. So, on clothing labels, that translates into a difference in design. A high thread count means a more detailed, crisp image.

Satin Woven Label

Satin offers the shiniest look. We all picture satin ribbon or pajamas and know that they are pretty reflective to light. Satin woven labels are a bit sturdy. I don’t want to use the word stiff but they are more rigid than the other two types. Satin has a low thread count.

Taffeta offers a non-reflective look. A good example of taffeta would be something you’d find on a canvas backpack or similar items. It’s durable but very pliable and typically a cost saver if ordered in bulk. Taffeta offers a medium thread count.

Damask Woven Label

Damask offers a slightly reflective or shiny appearance. Damask labels are everywhere. They are most common in apparel because they are soft and pliable to the touch. Damask offers the highest thread count of the three types of clothing tags. That means they have the tightest weave and will offer the most detail for your design.

Consider the above and choose wisely. Woven clothing labels will always add to your clothing or accessory and make people take notice.
