Jeans are considered a popular fashion item among people of all ages. However, have you ever found a leather tag on the back of your jeans? Although the design of the jeans is different, there is a leather label on the back of most denim.


Leather tags on the back of jeans have been around for a long time. As early as 1936, Lee, a well-known brand name for jeans, was the first to introduce leather labels for brand promos. Later, Lee gradually took a dominant position in the denim field worldwide, and after that, other brands started to follow Lee's example to incorporate leather labels into denim. Finally, jeans with a leather label are becoming mainstream.


First and foremost, the leather label on the jeans is used to provide the brand name to the customer. At the same time, it is also a place to express the creative thoughts of designers. For young people, after style and brand, a striking leather tag on jeans can convey their taste and character.

Second, jean's leather labels not only indicate identity but also provide many useful functions. For example, a large leather tag can help secure a belt when the jeans are too loose to fit.

In short, don't underestimate denim leather labels which have many functions such as decoration, advertising, and practical use.

Genuine leather vs. imitation leather labels

As a manufacturer of high-quality custom leather labels, we are competitively priced, enabling you to add value to luxury brand products using genuine leather, imitation leather, rubber, or PU. Real leather labels feel soft and textured, unmatched by any imitation.

Genuine leather tag

Genuine leather labels are the most upscale and classy option regarding label material choices, but other options are available for those on a slightly tighter budget. We manufacture durable genuine leather labels for use as jeans back patches and external branding on various garments and accessories.

Faux leather labels

First, we have faux leather, which looks like real leather. From a distance, it's nearly impossible to tell the two apart, but on closer inspection, there's a slightly springy aesthetic to the front.

Rubber leather label

Faux leather labels are less expensive than genuine leather, as they are made from imitation materials but may still be out of the price range of some customers. That's why we also sell rubber leather labels, which look like real and imitation leather, although the reverse is slightly different.

PU leather tag

As our cheapest option, PU leather labels are for customers on the tightest budgets but are inferior in quality to genuine leather and look and feel the least bit like the real thing.

Leather labels are commonly used for branding jeans belts, although leather labels are also a popular choice for outside branding of items such as knitwear & coats and accessories such as bags.

For outer garments such as coats or jackets, leather tags can be used as inside neck tags attached to printed cotton size tags. Alternatives available to leather labels include genuine and imitation leather, with processes including hot-stamping, printing, cracking effects, and adding metal elements such as rivets or decals.

Imitation and genuine leather labels are optimal for jeans, jackets, and workwear. Most leather labels require a pattern to stamp or enhance the logo on the label. We stock a wide range of leather tag colors – from classic brown suede to pink and ultra-durable leather.


Regarding clothing tags wholesale, genuine leather is the first option that comes to mind. Although  genuine leather is pre-treated and may be dyed, any label produced with genuine leather will look unique due to its natural texture. Due to color consistency, cost efficiency, and similar appearance to genuine leather, synthetic leather is also a choice for many brands when developing leather labels for product promotion. In the leather label manufacturing process, brand logos or designs can be embossed, debossed, or painted on the leather labels. We can manufacture with materials such as natural leather, faux leather, recycled leather, and plastic leather.

Labels are an opportunity to gain customers before they even try on your clothing, which is why leather is your best bet. Unusual and different among the crowd of paper and woven labels, leather calls out buyers, attracts them, and makes them look closer at your line.
