We are proud to announce the launch of our Unique Hoodie. The first of its kind in the imprintable industry, this innovative Hooded Sweat concept is fun, flexible and for everyone.
Fruit of the Loom own the exclusive licence for the Unique Hoodie product design, which has been specially styled to enable the back of the hood to be printed with any design. This revolutionary idea has a whole host of applications including promotions, tourism, music merchandising and licensing, to name just a few. The Unique Hoodie is produced at our Moroccan manufacturing plant and is made with Belcoro® Yarn, creating a cleaner, more stable print surface area, perfect for high quality printing.
The Unique Hoodie (280gm/m²) is available in adults sizes S-XXL and kids sizes 5-6 years – 14-15 years. It is also available as a Unique Hoodie Jacket (280gm/m²) in adults sizes S-XXL. Both styles are made from 80% cotton Belcoro® yarn, 20% polyester and feature double fabric hoods and self-coloured flat knit draw cords (no draw cords on kid’s sizes). All styles and sizes have the same size hood and print area for ease of printability. The Unique Hoodie and Unique Hoodie Jacket are offered in colours black, heather grey and deep navy.
So, what will you print?

We are proud to announce that Fruit of the Loom is the official T-shirt sponsor for the ‘Design-A-Tee’ competition at this year’s FESPA trade show, in London’s ExCel centre. Taking place from the 25-29June, FESPA is a destination show for anyone working in garment decoration and textile printing.
The ‘Design-A-Tee’ competition asks entrants to send in a creative design based on the FESPA Fabric logo. Entries will be published online for the FESPA community to vote on. The five most popular designs will then be showcased at FESPA Fabric 2013, where visitors to the show will vote for the best design. The main prize includes €2,000 and a framed picture of their winning design.
Fruit of the Loom have provided the organisers with a selection of men’s T-shirts for the top designs to be printed on and showcased at the exhibition. All of our 100% cotton T’s are made with Belcoro® yarn, giving a cleaner, more stable print surface. This means our T-shirts ensure high quality printing, excellent washing performance, less pilling and enhanced durability – perfect!
