Chemically safe inputs boost polo shirts' value


Suppliers are adopting reactive-dyed and Oeko-Tex Standard 100-compliant fabrics.




  • Use of reactive-dyed fabrics: Many polo shirt manufacturers in China employ these materials because the pigment is said to be safer for the environment than other kinds. The textiles are highly colorfast as well.
  • Increased output of nontoxic models: Upscale products, in particular, are free from azo and formaldehyde. The cadmium content is also within the industry limit. Some releases are certified according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
  • Hues & motifs: The latest tops come in vivid shades of red, blue, yellow, green, pink and purple. Color blocks and gradient hues are widely adopted. As regards patterns, stripes, argyle and geometric themes are still popular. Flowers and polka dots continue to be mainstream.
  • Trimmings: Embroidery or applique can be placed on the chest or sleeves to boost the shirt’s visual impact. In addition, suppliers use lace, ribbons and bowknots as adornments for women’s designs.
  • Price forecast: Businesses plan to augment quotes by 5 percent or less to reduce losses brought about by the yuan’s appreciation.
