Zip fastener is a commonly used device for binding the edges of an opening of fabric or other flexible material, as on a garment or a bag. It is used in clothing (e.g., jackets and jeans), luggage and other bags, sporting goods, camping gear (e.g. tents and sleeping bags), and other items.
A number of types of woven fabric labels are available as a means of promotion, information, and identification on garments and other textile products. It is important for best effect to choose the most appropriate clothing label. The three most common types of woven labels are:
This is the most common type of garment label. It is used when finer images or texts are required. It gives greater clarity, in detailed designs and texts. These labels are woven slower, with finer yarns, and higher weave density, than other labels, thereby giving a uniform weave, with added durability.
Satin clothing labels are usually less expensive than damask. They cannot present the detail of design of damask or taffeta labels, but offer a smooth, shiny, lustrous, soft appearance, and feel.
These labels are woven with a plain weave ground or base. This is a tight weave structure and produces a very stable, durable label. On this ground weave the design can be produced by a brocade weave effect. These labels are often used for care instruction labels, because of their low cost.
