Clothes hanger can come in various shapes and designs. Here’s an account of the most recent arrivals in the cloth hanger trends. You would surely agree that there could hardly be anything that could be more significant than closet organization than a humble hanger? The 3 excellent kinds of hangers are –
These hangers happen to be some of the heaviest one available in stores. But that does not mean they are heavier than iron hangers. They were previously used for hanging larger winter coats. So traditionally, they weren’t meant for lighter clothing.
There are many kinds of designs in the market. My personal favorites are the ones that have wooden top trellis and a sturdy metal rod that intersects both of the ends across the hangers’ bottom. Oftentimes, there’s an extra wooden bar that runs across the hangers’ bottom edge – this allows people to hang suit pants and/or other slacks.
The classic style Clothes Hanger – Wire Hangers
Made famous because of their cheap and mass production, these hangers were primarily made for dry cleaning businesses. These wire hangers have been designed only for momentary usage and usually light items are hung on them. It is unfortunate that despite the fact that they are quite inexpensive even in their manufacturing stage, they do bend/ buckle when tremendous weights are placed.
And even worse, they at times disfigure the original shape of the clothing that is hung. Most wire hangers were known to get discolored or rusted when exposed to humid air. This leaves horrible stains on the cloths that are hung.
Plastic clothes hangers
They are pretty much akin to the shape and sizes of wooden hangers. Most plastic hangers have been successful in rapidly replacing wire hangers, since mass production was the bottom line of these hangers. They are getting extensive popularity though.
But that does not mean that all sorts of plastic hangers are similar to wooden hangers. This is because they provide an extra bar across the hangers’ bottom to let you hang slacks. Most plastic hangers sell cheap but they are quite durable. Still, like those wooden hangers, the plastic counterparts eat up mammoth space in the closet. At times, children’s clothing is hung onto plastic hangers.
Some clothes hangers come with skirt clips. And when a hanger comes as tiered, it should be able to hold multiple garments concurrently. When it comes to pants, special cascading hanger-hooks are used for hoisting multiple pairs in one single vertical set.
And here’s something on the background
The hangers that you see today didn’t start off as regular household items. Back in 1869, a novelty worker made up a hanger. But that was the time when hangers were only used for commercial or retail usage. At that time general stores used them for displaying gentleman’s clothing – and this was the trend till 1906. But eventually, the culture of using clothes hanger turned out to be a household commodity.
Cloth hangers crossed a long way to come up here. Not to mention the fact that, a clothes hanger we used on customteesusa.com at that period were meant for wrinkle preventing and made out of cardboard padding.
