If you are in the business of selling clothing, the chances are you have hundreds of coat hangers gracing your rails. But are they supporting your business? Are garments being optimally presented? Do the hangers compliment the ‘look’ of your store? Do they even match those on the next rail?
You’ll be forgiven for taking the humble coat hanger for granted, but with the right range you could really make a difference to your store aesthetic and the presentation of your wares.
Wire hangers never used to win any awards for their looks; they were cheap and ideal for sliding masses of garments onto minimal rail space. But look again! Because today wholesalers like Morplan are offering shaped wire hangers in beautiful hues from rose gold to pastel blue.
Plastic hangers have their place too. They can be very reasonable (and of course the discounts just get better if you buy your hangers in bulk!) and range from sturdy suit hangers with moulded shoulders to children’s hangers that are stylishly clear, or come in a whole range of rainbow colours. The key is to get a consistent look across your plastic hangers – and with the range of colours on offer this is easily achieved.
Silk hangers are luxurious and padded – perfect for specialist boutiques selling bridalwear, lingerie or eveningwear. Morplan has 20 different types for you to choose from, with length and strength options as well as colours ranging from ivory, white and cream to black and even hot pink.
Black hangers can help stick to a consistent colour theme while offering perhaps the greatest range of styles – think black flocked hangers to prevent slippage, wide shouldered black suit hangers or even those made of black wood…
Wooden coat hangers exude quality and classical styling, but even within the vast range of wooden coat hangers Morplan offers, there are still over 50 types to choose from!
There is something very classy and classically colonial about a dark wooden coat hanger. It will never date and will always look like an investment piece – setting off whatever garment you choose to hang upon it. In fact, the darker wooden style has proven so popular recently that Morplan has just added a beautiful antique satin finished range of coat hangers.
For a fresh Scandi look you can’t go wrong with plain white painted wooden hangers. Or for a fashionably beachy look check out Morplan’s new range of distressed hangers which have been carefully sandblasted (but of course still have a super smooth, non-snagging finish!).
Perhaps unsurprisingly natural wood hangers are still the most popular and come in a whole host of styles. These are timelessly classy and unfussy yet exude an air of quality.
But even within the natural wood range of coat hangers there are still more choices – from luxurious ash to sustainable bamboo or even laminated wood for extra strength. With these the timber is carefully glued together in strips that are then shaped with steam, creating a hanger that can be slimline but will be stronger than a solid wood hanger of the same thickness.
