Better design, fabric choice enhance quality of children's shorts


Apart from upgrading construction, makers boost product performance by adopting functional, and plant- or animal-based materials.



  • Improved durability: Suppliers employ double stitching to strengthen seams. Nonwoven fabric is also placed under embroidered sections to prevent the garment from puckering and stretching after washing.
  • Natural & treated textiles: Lightweight cotton, linen and ramie are popular for spring and summer casual shorts. Warmth-retentive wool, a material typically used in winter wear, is mixed with cotton for added comfort. Sports pairs adopt functional nylon and polyester. These are chosen for the anti-bacterial, quick-dry and UV-protective qualities.
  • Eye-catching look: More attractive embellishments such as full-sized and irregularly shaped sublimation prints are chosen, with many of them using photographic designs. Differently hued fabrics are also utilized to provide visual interest.
  • Price forecast: Quotes for knitted children’s shorts are expected to rise 10 to 15 percent in coming months, about 5 percent more than the projected markup for woven types. This is due to knitted textile costs increasing roughly 15 percent in 2011.
