Improvements in fibre and textile production in the last 50 years mean more choice for consumers, with an increased number of fabrics available, while the automation of the whole manufacturing industry has meant customers are able to get the clothing they want in a shorter time period. Clothing which appears on the catwalks of Paris or London one week can be on the shelves the next.
If you are looking for clothing and workwear in Essex, there is now more choice than ever. Whether you’re looking for t-shirts for your promotional staff, high-visibility vests for your workers or thermals and waterproofs to keep you warm and dry, you can find a wide range of items with ease.
Speed Is of the Essence
One of the most obvious improvements in technology in the clothing industry in recent years is the speed with which items can now be made. What in the past would have taken several workers hours or even days to make, often by hand, can now be made by machine quickly and effectively in a fraction of the time.
Even personalised clothing items such as embroidered hoodies or printed t-shirts are now available at super-quick speeds, thanks to the development of manufacturing machines and computerised input.
This ability to supply what you need, when you need it, is of course important if you need clothing and workwear in Essex in a hurry.
New developments in high visibility, strength and flame retardancy mean workers can now carry out their jobs in the utmost confidence their safety is not compromised.
High-vis vests and other workwear are now more durable and reflective than ever, meaning your workers can do their job knowing they will be seen in the worst of conditions.
The same improvements have been made in recent years in flame-retardant materials, making them lighter and therefore more wearable, as well as more effective.
If you need specialist clothing and workwear in Essex, we have a wide range to keep you protected in the most extreme environments, right down to the socks on your feet.
New materials mean there are now more easy-to-care-for clothes available than ever before. Easy to wash, hard-wearing, no-crease (therefore no-iron) clothes come in a large range – not just children’s uniforms. There are even materials which repel dirt, meaning less cleaning and more wear – ideal for workwear, especially in environments which may get dirty.
Needing no special treatment during washing, and usually no special treatment afterwards either, a wide range of easy-care clothing and workwear in Essex is available.
Modern technology, then, has made the manufacture of clothing not only faster and easier but also resulted in better, easier-to-wear clothes as well as those which keep the wearer safe.
