The Boca Terry name is a promise of quality; and because of this promise, we have developed a number of outstanding products that are used by thousands. One of our most popular products is our collection of luxury bathrobes. Whether lightweight, or heavy and plush, we have a number of robes manufactured to suit each of your needs and specifications. Let’s learn more about our most durable robes:
What Makes Clothing Durable?
There are a number of factors that determine the length of a garment’s life. When products are made from strong materials, such as cotton and polyester, they are already well on their way to becoming a durable clothing item! That is why Boca Terry uses these materials in nearly each product: we truly care about quality.
Material choice is a large factor in durability. According to the University of Missouri, “Cotton is popular for a variety of reasons, but its durability is one of its most desirable properties. Fabric has become very important to consumers in the last few years” (University of Missouri). Therefore, items made from cotton (and especially 100% combed cotton) are a top choice when it comes to durability! Weight also plays a large factor in this. The heavier an item is, the stronger it is!
What else does Boca Terry do to ensure durability? Double stitching means that your clothing will be less likely to unravel or to have short strings hanging from it! If an item is double stitched, you will know that it is made with care; of course, double stitching is standard for most of our products!
Why Durability Matters to You
As a consumer, business owner, or purchasing manager, durability is an important factor when it comes to clothing. When you are shopping for clothing items and accessories, do you ever try on something that is cheaply made while looking in the mirror, and then proceed to commend yourself for buying something that looks cheap? We didn’t think so.
It’s important to think of each clothing item you buy as an investment; also, consider the robes you buy for your company as an investment to keep your guests happy and to bring more customers in! Amenities are a great way to drive business, and comfortable robes can have a large hand in that!
Why Durability Matters to our Planet
Durability means so much more than you might realize—it also means sustainability. Clothing, robes, towels, and accessories that are not made with quality in mind simply will not last; items will begin to fall apart, will become damaged, and will need to be replaced more quickly than non-sustainable items.
That means that clothing manufacturers need to produce more and more in order to supply the clothing demand. Why? Because they made a low-quality product that was not sustainable—it did not last 3 years or more.
According to the Huffington Post, “the average American throws away over 68 pounds of textiles per year. We’re not talking about clothing being donated to charity shops or sold to consignment stores, that 68 pounds of clothing is going directly into landfills. Because most of our clothing today is made with synthetic, petroleum-based fibers, it will take decades for these garments to decompose” (Whitehead). This alarming number should cause consumers, retailers, and purchasing managers alike to reconsider the effects of the fast fashion industry. The truth is, consumers and buyers need to consider opting for a more durable, sustainable option!
