PTP: Silk Label Secrets (Updated 08/21)

Those little silk labels are holding a secret . . .

The little silk label that’s on most CPK outfits, hold a secret. Special thanks to Jodi Punki Patch and her amazing observational skills for catching this and making me look into it more.

Within the Coleco factories, you can use the silk label to figure out where the outfit was made, to a point. At this point, I have found that there are four different labels.

For a list of all the factories that produced CPK material, visit Factories and Companies.

Chinese factories use the regular label that we are all familiar with.
Factories: OK, P, CC, FW, KT, LF, PMI, SS, WS

Two China labels, KT and OK. The right will be used for continued comparison.

Factories from Taiwan use a larger label is that is white in colour.
Factories: AX, CY, EX, FD, IC, UT, WW, HRS

Taiwan (UT) Vs. China (OK)

Labels from the Korean factories (IJ, SY) look like the regular China labels, but they are slightly darker in colour.

Korea (IJ) Vs. China (OK)

Outfits from the USA factory are larger, white and made of a canvas-like material.

USA factory Vs. China (OK)

Jesmar outfits tend to have a slightly smaller tag, with a slightly darker green. I’ve also noticed that sometimes the stitching is done badly where it is sewn on. For more information on Jesmar outfits visit: Jesmars and J Clothing
