Woven Clothing Labels

Label Types & Materials

It is the final touch - yet, it is the first impression.
Hi-Life woven clothing labels are available in a wide array of weaves, softness and clarity. Each of our clothing labels has its own attributes. Our clothing labels are manufactured to have excellent depth of details, luxurious sensation to the touch and most importantly to be pleasing to the eye.  If your garment or project requires a high-end impression, we are your solution.

                 We have divided our woven labels into different types. Each type of woven label has unique benefits and advantages related to specific applications.  Woven labels are made of Polyester, Lurex and acrylic.  Below are some of the materials used in our clothing labels.  The polyester yarn used in synthetic fibres is gauged in terms of thickness of denier yarns or DTEX. Some yarn has a thicker gauge than others. The finer the gauge (or smaller the denier number) the finer detail can be achieved on logos and artwork; however the opposite is true when speaking of cotton denier yarn. Please feel free to call us for more details.

Manufacturing process

Woven clothing labels are manufactured using rapier weaving looms. The looms weave polyester yarns called warp and weft yarns re-creating the logo submitted by the client in the form of artwork. The clothing labels are woven in a tape form and then cut by thermic cutters or laser. This method seals the yarns to prevent fraying. Woven labels are more durable than printed clothing labels and tend to launder better in the long run. There are several benefits to choosing a woven clothing label which include high-end final appearance, durability and softness against the skin. Woven labels give a more luxurious impression to garments while printed clothing labels give a lighter, daintier feel to the garment.  Please ask for a few free samples.

Standard Taffeta

            Standard Taffeta. Nothing fancy, gets the job done, most cost effective label. Not real soft though. The taffeta clothing label achieves a simple logo or text in an economical manner. These can be a bit scratchy if sewn on the inside of garments.

Damask Labels

                        Woven labels are our best-selling for good reason.  The finish is opaque in appearance and has a soft, subtle texture with a very tight weave. This clothing label is suitable for high-end garments that require a refined trim finish. The loom weaves this clothing label slower than other labels thereby giving the clothing label a nice uniform weave. This type of weave is the perfect clothing label if you are searching for a clothing label that will give a high-end impression. The damask label is also ideal for very minute logo or artwork. The slower loom speed allows great depth in logos, colour separation, detail and clarity.

Virtual technology allows us to weave photo like quality on clothing labels giving shading, depth and richness of colours. These clothing labels are referred to in the industry as tapestry labels or photo weave clothing labels.

Taffeta Twill

The details achieved are not extremely high but rather limited. The loom weaves this garment label at a high speed and therefore the detail on logo or artwork is more general. This is not a clothing label for dense, intricate detail. This is a clothing label for the customer that has to get a garment label on the product to get it on the shelf, is not concerned about a high end look, and really just needs to get the job done.

Taffeta and Satin Up Ground Labels

By reverse weaving we are able to create a textured "bulky" looking label. This label is just the opposite of our damask clothing label. While the Damask is fine and detail driven, the Taffeta Up-Ground is heavily textured on the ground area of the label, making the weave itself prominent in addition to the logo or artwork. This particular woven clothing label lends itself well to technical clothing, tactical garments for military, backpacks, camping equipment and other outdoorsy type items. This is designed to be a "beefy" garment label. We can add starch to the label process to make it even stouter if required. This is similar to the Satin Up-Ground only a bit less detailed and not as soft.

Iron On Label

This can solve labelling problems fast. This iron on label is a damask weave with a laser cut edge and iron-on adhesive backing. Simply run a hot iron over it approximately 45 seconds and it adheres to any fabric. Iron-on labels do not replace a stitched on name label however, repeated washings and laundry cycles can cause the corners of the label to start to lift. Add merrowing - chain type stitching around the exterior border of the clothing label - which gives a woven “patch” feel to the label and reduce the chances of corners peeling up and off the fabric. This type of label is suitable for the garment identified in a rapid fashion with a label that suffices in a pinch.   This is not the type of label recommended for high value garments.

Woven Tape

We can supply you with Damask jacquard tape in the roll form. Great for large production applications where strips of jacquard weaves are required. With a damask weave, the detail is very fine and precise therefore this lends itself well for accent strips on fleece, neck line collars or accent bias pieces on handbags. We are able to weave both sides of the custom tape thereby allowing your custom logo to be seen on both sides of the woven tape.

Peel & Stick Labels (Pressure Sensitive)

 

This fabric label is super adhesive and comes on a roll form or cut and loose form. Simply peel and press onto the article or product for instant identification. Best if used on shoes or other items that are not repeatedly laundered. We offer these in both woven label form and in printed satin label form. These labels are also excellent for adhering to furniture, rugs, Household products or other automotive applications that are not necessarily in the garment or clothing industry.

Satin Woven

 

Satin Labels are produced on a faster weaving loom. This label is still quite soft and malleable however is not quite as luxurious as the satin needle loom clothing label. The detail is good on simple logos and special font text. This woven label can be used on a variety of products that require a soft label, slight sheen in appearance and good durability for a woven label.

Pillow Label, Pillow Puff Label, Yarn Injection Label, Padded Labels

 

This garment label has an excellent uniform damask weave which is then die cut or laser cut out of the strip then injected with micro fibre yarns which allow the label to have a “pillow” effect. With sewing allowance which allows the pillow label to be sewn down to the garment. Used for baby blankets, quilts and other crafts that require a padded label effect.

New Trends & Labels: Woven with Rhinestone Labels

                    

               After weaving  the rhinestones are  fixed on the required place on this label gives a Star appeal to garments by ultrasonic welding method. We are able to spell out names, logos or create whimsical designs with the stones on the label. The label can then be sewn down on garments wherever the label will give the apparel the biggest boost. This label is very popular with youth and teenage fashion designers.


Laser Cut Felt Clothing Label

    

Precise letters, numbers or symbols can be cut on the material using Laser. The label will have the feel of a soft old baseball jersey. Laser cuts are made to custom design. Laser is generated by using galvanometric technology and is pointed on the label where it has to be “cut” or “burnt”, thus forming a custom cut label. Easily to sewn onto garments and it gives great depth detail.

Laser Cut Appliqués

We also supply Laser cut Appliqués that can be Sewn or ironed on any type of fabric like cotton, synthetics or blended material.
