Garment Accessories - The Soul of All Garments

Garment accessories like Buckles, Buttons, Hooks, Loops, Zippers, etc. play an important role in making the garment stay at its place when worn. Other garment accessories like Beads, Buckles, Ribbons, Sequins, Belts, Lace, Tassels & Cords, etc. accentuate the beauty of the garment lending it an exquisite appeal. On the other hand, there are some garment accessories, which add to the comfort of the garment like shoulder Pads, Linings, Interlinings, webbings, etc. Badges and logos on the garments usually depict the brand, which manufactures the garment or the name of a company or institution, in case of promotional purposes.

A readymade garment cannot solely be judged merely by the quality of the fabric used. The accessories employed also play a key role in determining the quality of a garment. Thus, good brands always pay great deal of attention in sourcing the most premium grade garment accessories for their range of clothes.

Buttons are one of the most common accessory used in almost all types of clothes. They are available in a number of shapes, sizes, and designs. They may be fabricated in wood, plastic, metal, etc. and sometimes may even be embellished with precious and semi-precious stones. Primarily, buttons serve a utility purpose, like in jeans, shirts, blouses, skirts, etc. But at times, designer buttons are merely attached to a piece of clothing just to enhance its visual appeal.

Lace is an accessory with a very feminine touch. They are usually employed to accessorize women's garments. When attached to skirts, t-shirts (sheer-fabric), etc., they add a hint of playfulness and elegance to the whole attire. Laces made from high quality cotton are often used, which are both soft as well as skin friendly.

Many a garments need zippers and zipper sliders, including jeans, skirts, jackets, etc. They should be strong and durable, to withstand the day to day wear and tear. They often come in a number of sizes and colours, and can also be customized as per the needs and requirements of the users.

Shoulder pads and linings are used for those clothing items, which are usually made from sheer fabrics, or those fabrics, which are silky and slip easily. The shoulder pads attached under the shirts or blouses help them stay on the body and give a definite shape to it. The lining used in clothes is often to beat the transparency of the fabric and also give volume to thin fabrics.

As can be seen form above, garment accessories have an important role to play in the quality of a readymade garment. As I was browsing the Internet, I came across alibaba.com, a B2B web portal, connecting buyers worldwide. Finding that it may be of help to my friend, a garment exporter, I referred it to him. He has not stopped thanking me since then. He, through the web portal, came into contact with thousands of companies supplying garment accessories. Thus, not only was he able to zero in on the best supplier but also cut a cost effective deal; and all this just with the click of the mouse.
