Jacquard woven beanies should be on every fashion brands mind at this time of the year, as the results can be quite incredible when this branding technique is applied to knitted beanies. It can turn a very simple beanie hat into a stylish statement.
‘’Jacquard weave is named after the Frenchman Joseph Marie Jacquard who invented the patterning mechanism in 1801.’’
Jacquard woven patterns are produced on a special weaving loom, fitted with a specific patterning mechanism, made up of a series of needles. It usually combines two or more sets of yarn together to create a design which is applied onto the beanie.
The important thing to remember here is that the more colours and detail that the design has, the less stretch the beanie will have. Because of this, we would suggest using simplistic designs, as these tend to work best.

Jacquard weave is a bold, clean and wildly popular technique that should, at the very least be a consideration when branding a bespoke beanie throughout the autumn and winter months.
Of course if jacquard weaving is not for you, we have a plethora of other amazing branding techniques, both in house and bespoke made. These include, but are not limited to: embroidery, liquid metal, laser cutting, woven badges, buckle customisation and various printing methods.

We wanted to give you a detailed rundown with respect to SL Black Label's operations during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Our first priority is to protect everyone. Our staff, our customers, and our suppliers. It is vital that we do whatever it takes to keep people safe and well during such a worrying time.
For this reason, we are semi closing down our usual operations on Friday 27th March.
Up to now, we have been operating with a skeleton staff and ensuring that we respect the 2-meter rule. But from Friday, our staff will be at home and not operating within the business, until a period of normality resumes.
From both a health and an economic perspective, these are hard times beyond anything experienced before.
During this time, the directors of the business will be answering the phones and covering the emails of the staff, so we can continue a kind of “business as usual” situation.China Production
If you need larger orders which requires more than one embroidery operative, we will need to consider un-furloughing off one or more of the operatives. However, we will need to consider the current government advice and whether the government are allowing these at the time.
Essentially, we are very well placed to continue to supply while keeping our people safe in this tough environment.
It only leaves us to say – keep well and keep safe. I am sure like you, we cannot wait for the COVID-19 pandemic to subside, allowing us all to return to normal life
