There are three types of woven labels: brocade, satin and taffeta woven labels.

Each of them has its own unique characteristics, which makes them very suitable for different purposes.

Let's take a look at the characteristics of the eac woven label type:.


This is the most common type of woven label. Damask woven labels are made of polyester yarn and come in hundreds of colors. Damask woven labels have the highest thread count and provide a finer design definition than other weaves.

The end result is a woven label with a luxurious soft feel and a rich appearance. This is why brocade weaving is used when high quality and softness are particularly important.

At Labeloom, we offer two types of brocade woven labels, 100(D) denier brocade and 50D (denier) brocade (also known as high-density/definition woven labels).

The letter D (denier) refers to the size of the thread. The lower the denier, the higher and the finer the yarn quality. 100 denier brocade is already very high-quality and soft, but usually, for luxury clothing brands worn by babies or children, or with many smaller letters and details, 50 denier brocade woven labels are your best choice


If you are looking for soft and shiny products, you may be interested in satin labels. This weave has a higher thread count than taffeta, but not as high as brocade; therefore, it will not weave small details and letters and brocade labels .

Popular applications of satin woven labels include mid- to high-end women's and men's clothing and outerwear.


Taffeta woven labels are not for everyone, because they are low density, you can't have too much detail, and the background can show the woven yarn threads. Taffeta woven labels have a more retro look and are the cheapest choice of woven label types.

If they are in contact with the skin, they are not recommended, but they are very suitable for simple designs and fonts larger than 7 points.
