Dust off your denim and update it for the new season
‘Recycle, repurpose and reclaim’ are three of the most popular words in fashion right now and it’s mainly down to one fabric: Denim. It’s been a wardrobe staple for decades and is one of our favourite fabrics to work with. It’s something everyone needs in their wardrobe, making it a great investment for designers.
It’s no secret that the soaring popularity of denim is thanks in part to trends from the 80s and 90s making a comeback. High street stores are catering to their customers by snapping up vintage fabrics – like denim – and transforming them into new designs. ASOS has its successful Reclaimed range and Urban Outfitters recently announced it’ll be producing a ReWork collection featuring you guessed it, plenty of vintage denim.
It’s not all about vintage either, high street brands such as Topshop are leading the way with their premium denim ranges that are innovative in cut and style. Popular bloggers We Are Twinset and Sincerely Jules regularly describe denim as a ‘wardrobe staple’ and A-List fashion blogger Elle Ferguson even has a wardrobe dedicated solely to denim shorts!
If you’ve been inspired to bulk buy a few kilos of vintage denim or are thinking of starting up your own denim collection, we have a full range of products that will help you put your own stamp on the iconic fabric:
We love these quirky products so much we even dedicated an entire blog post to them. Iron-on patches are a great throwback to the 80s and 90s and are the easiest way to make each garment unique. Invest in a pile of vintage denim jackets or cut off shorts and cover each one in different patches. You’ll not only be breathing new life into a vintage design, but you’ll also be offering your customers something that’s completely one-of-a-kind.
These labels look their best above the rear pockets or on the belt line on jeans, but are so adaptable they could be used wherever you like!
Denim can be super-tricky to care for and often comes with special washing instructions. If you’re thinking about designing denim garments, you’ll need to make sure your customers are clear on how they can get the best out of their jeans and jackets. That’s where our wash labels come in. We have over 50 years experience making them and know exactly what information they need to contain.
Again, these hard-wearing labels are a fantastic way to update vintage garments. Because they are so durable they can withstand cold weather, which is perfect for the upcoming winter season. Metal labels are ideal if you want your denim to have a high-end look.
There are plenty of ways to spruce up your denim garments, it just depends on the look you want to achieve. If you’re buzzing with ideas, drop us an email and we’ll talk you through the rest.
