How to Pick the Right Clothing Accessory Label

When it comes to clothing accessories, you have to think about durability in a unique way. For clothing labels, the primary concern is in the amount of times an item is going to be washed. Seeing that most of us don’t wash our backpacks and umbrellas on a weekly basis, the focus here needs to be on usage, not laundering.

Many accessories are exposed to friction, sweat, or environmental elements and will need more durable tagging. The most durable options are the woven tags and the woven custom patches. In the case of a chic clutch that will only be used once or twice a year, you may be able to get away with custom cloth labels such as cotton labels or silk labels. These materials are not designed to be used every day, at least not in the world of fabric branding. You will have to think about which ones ultimately suit your needs.
