1. Sewing Thread
It is invariably the most important part of any garment industry. Garments cannot be stitched without a sewing thread. Even though sewing thread typically makes up a small portion of the cost of clothing, it has a huge impact on the final item’s appearance and durability. Natural and synthetic fibres can both be used to make sewing thread. There are various types of threads available such as synthetic threads, threads made from natural fibres, filaments, spun and core-spun.
Buttons are the one item that can be used with any outfit and serve as both a functional and decorative element. It is a tiny, generally round, plastic or metal object with a disc- or knob-like shape that is used to close openings or decorate clothing. It is typically made of plastic, but it can also be made of metal, horn, ivory, shell, celluloid, glass, wood, etc. A button is typically a fastener that is inserted into a loop of thread or a buttonhole.
This item was created by a Swiss inventor, who proposed the brand name “Velcro” for it. This product is made of two woven poly-amide tapes that can be pulled apart and cling together when pressed around each other. One of the tapes is covered in extremely tiny hooks, and the other in extremely tiny loops. Only a small number of clothing items, such as shoes, belts, sportswear, children’s clothing, medical textiles, etc., use it.
Labels are an integral part of clothing that are sewn or printed with significant information about the item. It enables customers to be conscious of what they are wearing. The buyer’s name, the country of origin, the fabric and yarn types, the fabric composition, the size of the garment, any special care instructions, and other information are all included on a garment’s label.

Badges are a great way to brand garments. Clothing doesn’t have to be anything particularly special but by adding a badge to it, you’re giving shoppers an identity and something they belong to.
