Premium Hardware and Trim
At Polimex, we know that hardware and trim can be just as important as the fabric used to create an item of clothing. Often hardware or trim stands out on a garment, whether it be a zipper on an exclusive dress or buttons to a pair of signature collection trousers.
These decisions and hardware/trim sourcing can make a massive difference in how an item is perceived. We make it a point to use only the best when it comes to hardware and trim, offering YKK zippers, horn Buttons from Union Knopf, interlining from Kufner as well as other high-quality hardware and trim produced in the European Union. We also offer you the ability to customize your hardware, including laser engraving or die casting to add that little bit of individuality to accentuate the identity of your brand.
Options for Customizing Clothing
As a fashion designer, you’ve doubtless poured your artistic and creative ideas into the creation of your clothing line, and your brand is a reflection of your individuality. As a result, you’re almost certainly going to have areas where you’ll need to customize any garment order so that it reflects your personal vision.
At Polimex, we’re committed to delivering a full suite of options for customization, of which the following represent a sampling:
Custom Hardware For years, custom hardware was the domain of the big brands. However, Polimex brings that level of detail and originality to smaller brands. We’re able to produce custom buttons, zips, rivets and other hardware using laser engraving and other customization techniques. If you’re looking to set your brand apart from the crowd, custom hardware can be that missing piece of flair.
Printing We’re able to assist and advise you if you’re uncertain about what printing type or types you’d like for your garment. We offer a wide range of printing techniques and methods, from screen printing to digital printing for more complex projects.
Color Matched Fabric Our fabrics start out in their uncolored, raw form, and we dye them to meet your exact requirements. What this means is that we’re able to produce identical colors within collections, an essential for maintaining perfect color matching across multiple clothing items. Our coloring system guarantees that we’ll always dye your fabrics to your specific requirements each time.
Embroidery Most commonly, embroidery will be used to create a logo for your garments, an essential part of making your brand recognizable and unique. At Polimex, we use a digital and machine-based technique to program the automated threading of embroidery. This ensures a regular and consistent embroidered pattern to your specifications.
Pattern making and fit
At Polimex, we’re experienced with patterns such as regular fit, slim fit, drop shoulder and oversized, and will produce your garments to whatever fit you specify. Fit can sometimes be overlooked because it’s not directly visible, but it’s absolutely essential to the look you’re trying to create. A clothing item that doesn’t fit its wearer can destroy the aesthetic of the piece, and we’re committed to making sure your garments have the fit you require. We work from the most advanced systems in CAD using software such as Gerber and Lectra to manually paper patterns. It's all up to you which path you prefer to take. Most importantly is that we are able to create that genuine fit and feel that you as a designer require. From sketch to ready to wear a garment
