Broad material options expand robes selection


Makers are employing various constructions of cotton, silk and polyester to yield models suitable for different seasons.



  • Fabric variety: China suppliers are adopting skin-friendly, moisture-absorbent and warmth-retentive materials in recently launched robes. They also choose textiles appropriate for specific seasons. Summer designs come mostly in cotton, cotton-silk and other lightweight fabrics, while those for spring and fall are made of polyester satin, velour or fleece. Winter variants have a cotton or T/C shell, polyester padding and pile textile lining.
  • Colors & patterns: Blue, pink, gray, and camel and coffee brown are currently popular. As regards motifs, florals, plaids, hearts and animal-skin themes such as leopard spots and tiger stripes are still trendy. The decoration can be allover or localized.
  • Price forecast: Quotes will likely remain unchanged in the next six months. While material costs are going down, companies expect labor outlay to escalate further and the yuan to continue gaining strength.
  • Sales projections: Banking on an expanded clientele, manufacturers anticipate 2012 revenue from foreign transactions to increase between 10 and 20 percent.
