Understand How Independent Trading Co Products Are Organized
Like a great wine, Independent Trading Company’s catalog is complex and varied, and if you take a moment to appreciate what goes into it, you will begin to appreciate what you can get out of it. Let’s take a few moments to break down how Independent Trading Company organizes it’s products.
- Style codes that start with PRM, signify Independent Trading Company’s premium collection and feature pigment dyed fleece. This 100% cotton yarn face fleece is super soft, both inside and out, and it’s available in groovy washed out colors. The pigment dyeing process leaves every garment slightly different and garments get softer over time as they are washed and worn. These products work great for embroidery and for screen printing and can of course be privately labeled.
- SS style codes indicate Independent Trading Co’s standard supply, this midweight cotton/poly blended fleece is a go to favorite for high quality and cost effectiveness. These garments are similar in weight to most wholesale hoodies and sweatshirts, but have great stock, solid quality, and an amazing color selection. These hoodies are great for cool climates but likely aren’t warm enough for cold weather.
- Style codes that start with Ind denote Independent Trading Company’s signature Independent collection and feature our most cherished heavyweight cotton/polyester blended fabric to create premium hoodies. These hoodies come in 2 varieties, the ind4000 & ind5000. The ind4000 hoodies are 25% - 35% heavier than traditional midweight hoodies, are available in a massive color variety and have unmatched stock. They feature speciality patterns like forest camo, snow camo, desert camo and safety colors like neon orange. The ind5000 series is a super heavyweight hoodie, nearly 60% heavier than a standard midweight fleece hoodie. It is a perfect hoodie and sweatshirt for creating premium collections and we love to add embroidery, labels, or patches. Both fabrications are warm enough to be worn in cold climates and are durable enough to last for years.
- Understanding the expedition collection is key to developing a full range of products for your brand. It contains outerwear and jackets with quality construction and technical capabilities to perform under extreme conditions. Pay special attention to the raincoats and lightweight windbreakers which are great to embroider and relabel. The puffer jackets are great options for Fall and Winter collections. The canvas workwear jackets are a particularly great fit for gear head inspired brands.
