Woven name labels
Woven name labels are woven tapes in which the text is interwoven. Woven name labels can be woven into polyester or cotton. The woven name tapes’ length depends on the length of the text, therefore it’s important to write a text that becomes as long as you wish.
The woven tapes are usually attached by sewing them at each end. An alternative to sewing the name tapes is to use Taggit, which is like a thumbtack in plastic that is attached for example on a laundry label. There is even a possibility to buy woven name tapes with transfer-paper than can be ironed onto garments.
How good the woven name tapes stick to the garment of course depends on how many stitches you attach it with. If you choose a woven name tape in cotton it will most likely stay beautiful even after many washes, while a woven name tape in polyester can give in after a while.
A big advantage with woven name tapes in comparison to other labels is that it is possible to remove it, and this will raise the value of the clothing extensively.
If you have chosen a woven name tape that you have used ironing or Taggit on, it will not stick to the garment as well as it would if you would have sewn it.
The con of woven name tapes against other products is that it takes a longer time to label the clothes, at least for someone who does not have their sewing machine up and ready to go. When the sewing machine is ready it doesn’t take a lot of time to attach.
Something that isn’t commonly known is that there is an excellent solution for those who do not own a sewing machine or those who would like to label their garments with woven name tapes but find it difficult to attach them by sewing. The solution is Taggit and can best be described as a ”thumbtack” in plastic, in which piece A is attached to piece B. With use of Taggit your clothes are labeled just as quickly as with iron-on labels.
Woven name tapes for the most adults bring back childhood memories. A lot of people recognize and remember the beautiful name tapes from their childhood.
Unlike for example iron-on labels, the woven name tapes are a decoration on clothing, especially if you sew them on yourself. They come in various widths - 10 mm, 15 mm and 25 mm - which create the opportunity to label even self-produced works. Moreover, there is a possibility to choose from a great number of tape colors and fonts. Each woven name tape is unique and the manufacturing process is akin to a reminiscent time. Please take a look at this video from YouTube when a name tape is woven.
If you have a child that is allergic or whose skin is easily irritated, woven name tapes in cotton are a wonderful choice.
