Cozy Materials: Flannel, Cotton, Velvet
We are officially more than halfway through October and Autumn is in full swing. As a result, the leaves are changing, and we are looking forward to breaking out our boots, scarves and most importantly, cozy clothes. With the change of seasons come change of materials. We trade in light and airy cottons and muslin for thicker, cozy materials like flannel, cotton and velvet.
We can convey our admiration of the seasonal changes and materials through our wardrobes as well as packaging. To match with Fall/Winter fashions and packaging trends, a wide selection of treatments can pair with cozy materials. This creates a warm cozy look for any packaging piece. From shopping bag handles, and pouches to the interior lining of gift boxes, apply these cozy materials anywhere for a trendy, seasonal look.
Cozy Materials: Flannel
Flannel is a soft woven fabric that comes in a variety of thicknesses. Many manufacturers create this material from wool-like fabrics or even yarn. Now, flannel is made from either cotton or synthetic fibers. This type of cozy material has the option to have a brush-like texture or extra softness. Flannel is soft enough to keep your jewelry, accessories or sunglasses safe; and will not scratch. Flannel is one of the most popular cozy materials when creating pouches or duster bags of any type.
When customizing your flannel packaging, adding some foil hot stamping is a must. The metallic hues against the texture of the flannel material will be sure to create a cozy seasonal piece of packaging your customers will love. All while keeping your products or apparel safe.
Cotton is one of the most common materials when it comes to reusable packaging. Cozy materials like this are the perfect versatile material that never goes out of style. Cotton comes in different gauges and weaves. Use this material year-round as a fashion piece or as packaging. Cotton bags and apparel come in a variety of premium and trendy styles. Cozy materials like cotton can also be distressed or washed prior to construction to soften the fabric. Add embellishments to make any piece of your cotton packaging unique. One of cotton’s greatest advantages is that it is a renewable material and can be made from organic sources.
Create your seasonal bags and pouches from this cozy material. When customizing your cotton packaging pieces, some treatments to think about are foil hot stamping, or custom printing. In addition to popular treatments, we can match any Pantone color for a bag or pouch that completely fits into your brand.
Velvet is the perfect material to use during the fall and winter months. A luxurious yet cozy material that always fits into packaging or fashion. When looking at seasonal fashion trend reports, velvet is considered to be the go-to of the cozy materials. Whether it’s on shopping bag handles, custom gift boxes, ribbon, or pouches, velvet can be added to any piece to fit your brand.
There are a few different types of velvet that can add some coziness to your packaging. Bold or bright color velvet adds a fun twist to this chic fabric. Therefore, using pops of Autumnal or Wintry colors or trends like yellows, florals or animal print gives the material a seasonal feel.
Above all, regardless of what is in your brand’s packaging collection, cozy materials like flannel, cotton or velvet can mix and match with a wide selection of treatments or other 2020/20201 trends. The selection of these trends, materials and treatments create a packaging piece that your customers can keep year-round as a reminder of your brand.
