Used for brand identification or product decoration, clothing labels are an excellent way to emphasize product quality and create elevated product differentiation.
Here is a brief description of the most common type of folds:
1. End fold: End folded labels are folded down on the left and right side.
2. Straight Cut: Also known as heat cut. It’s not straightly a fold, the clothing label is cut from the woven tape using heated wire.
3. Loop Fold: Same as the centre fold, but the clothing label is not creased flat. It is normally sewn into the side seam.
4. Manhattan Fold: Like a centre fold label but the top is also folded down creating a flap to tuck the bottom into the flap. Sometimes the sides of the clothing label are heat sealed to create a pocket for spare buttons, it is then sewn into the side seam.
5. Center Fold: The clothing label is folded in the middle and usually sewn into the seam. The information are divided on top and bottom. The information in the back can be read when the woven is flipped upward.
6. Mitre Fold: The ends of the clothing label are folded under and up creating a tab to be sewn into the seam.
7. Die Cut No folding, the clohing label is cut into different shapes using a die or cut by laser.
