Quality Always First

Would it be too much to ask for quality clothes but without the price tag?

Well, maybe there can be such a thing.

When it comes to setting up your online retail apparel, you have to be picky about the quality. The last thing we want is to have clothes that leave customers in dismay.

Which is why we take extreme care in stocking clothes that have the highest quality but still leave you with plenty of room to not go over your pesky budgets.

Production Standards:

How do you know whether the clothes you are buying are of high quality?

Well, you need to do your research. Production standards are an important part of everyone’s search list when it comes to finding the right wholesale partner to meet your quality needs. You need to know if the company are in full control of the quality from start to finish or are outsourced to reputable others.

Fruit of Loom clothing hits the nail on the head, quality clothes but rarely going over the 10 dollar mark. Using finest raw cotton and ethics to match the standard of the clothes, we are proud to stock Fruit of Loom as one of our best sellers at Wordans.

We checked to make sure the company has complete control from start to finish to ensure production (and of course ethics link to ethics post) are maintained at high standards across the board.

Try out our Fruit of Loom collection. With this attention to detail, it’s no wonder these products are in high demand.

Eco Friendly in the Wholesale Industry

The clothes wholesale industry can leave a serious amount of negative footprint on the environment. To create the ‘best shade’ of red, toxic dyes and other ingredients are used in the manufacturing process which can contribute to a big whole in the ozone layer.

Pesticides are used when growing cotton and 1/3 of a pound of toxic chemicals is used to make just one shirt.

So what’s the solution?

We try to find sustainable organic suppliers, that use natural fibres or sustainable fabrics to trim the amount of carbon utilized in the pursuit of the perfect outfit. Renewable fibres add durability to your clothes. Making your clothes appear timeless after multiple uses and washes. The textures are often thicker and can show off the quality of the stitching.

We look for companies that are WRAP certified and with a transparency that promotes green use. Suppliers such as Bella + Canvas, Alternative Apparel and Fruit of Loom are promoting forward thinking eco friendly policies. In today’s world of fast moving consumer goods, it is imperative that companies like these act as inspiration to the rest of the western world.

Now, we’ve talked about being eco-friendly. But what what about the quality?

Bella + Canvas – Dissecting The Tee

 

Did you know that two seemingly identical tees can be very different? When you look into what goes into its construction all the way down to the thread level you will be able to see these differences.

How a tee is made has immediate influence on the way it feels, the fit, durability and printability.

Below we will break down the different elements of a tee you’ll want to pay attention to so you can ensure you’re getting the right blank for you and your business.

Carded Open End vs. Ringspun

 

Ring spun cotton

You start with the same cotton fiber strands. But in the Ringspun process the yarn is made by continuously twisting and thinning the strands making a very fine rope of cotton fibers. The twisting makes the short hairs of cotton stand out, resulting in a stronger yarn with a significantly softer hand.

Combed and ring-spun cotton, this kind of fibers are spun then combed through to remove impurities while ensuring they stays soft to the touch. Fewer impurities mean a smoother surface to print on. Our BELLA+CANVAS products, for instance, are broadly known for their superior quality as they use this combing and ring-spun method.

Carded open-end. The industry standard is usually a carded open-end tee, since it is a cheaper way of turning cotton into yarn. In this method, fibers are bound by a wrapped fiber that runs perpendicular to the bundle, whereas in ring-spun cotton, all of the fibers are aligned in the same direction. Up close you can see that carded open end fiber is bulky, fuzzy and creates an uneven knit.

Side-Seamed vs. Tubular

Side Seams create the tailored structure a tee needs to fit correctly. Although pricier to make, these are the only type of tees you’ll find in a retail store. They also happen to be the only type of tees you’ll find at BELLA+CANVAS.

Tubular Tees are cheaper to manufacture because they require less sewing. They are made by cutting “tubes” of fabric, so they’re exactly the same in the front and the back, aside from the neck drop. Because of this, and the fact that our bodies are not tubes, these types of tees tend not to fit right.

Singles and Weight

Single is a term that refers to the diameter of a yarn, determined by number of times you twist the fiber. The higher the single, the finer the yarn and the softer resulting garment.  Think of it like you do sheets—a higher thread count means softer the sheets! Most cheap shirts are made from 18 or 20 singles. 

Weight, as you can probably guess, is the weight of per square yard or meter. Lighter fabrics tend to be made from combed and ring-spun cotton and are typically much softer than the heavy weight, open-end alternatives.

Now you can navigate the market like a pro!
