What to do
The company's Cherokee Work wear brand has become a favourite among healthcare professionals. Cherokee Work wear products include uniforms and scrubs in colourful prints, such as popular cartoon characters and non-traditional fabrics, like denim.
Poly/cotton blend poplin fabric
Cherokee's Work wear collection is made of a poly/cotton blend poplin fabric. Klopman International introduced the concept of the poly/cotton work wear to Europe in 1968 and describes the fabric as 65 percent polyester and 35 percent cotton.
Poplin is a plain crosswise rib-weaving of the fabric that is durable and heavy. The collection offers protection to the wearer through a soil release feature, which enables wearers to resist dirt and harmful contamination. The soil released and repellent properties are introduced to the fabric substrates via selected electron-donating carboxylic acid groups.
Investors Trinidad Mares, James Harris and Jett Arthur Jr., describe the process in United States Patent 4063885. The trio explains that treated fabrics manifest high durability and varied construction and compositions, making them able to withstand constant laundering and pressing.
The Cherokee Work wear collection
The Cherokee Work wear collection includes V-neck scrub tops with a mock wrap, stretch crease pants, V-neck cardigans, snap front and V-neck tunics, zip front jackets, drawstring and utility pants and a mock wrap tunic. It offers unisex tunics and tops alongside short- and long-sleeved shirts. The collection is available in more than 18 colours.
Specialised uniforms stores or clothing outlets
The company does not sell online from their website, so products must be located through specialised uniform stores or other clothing outlets. Go to the Cherokee Uniforms company's website. Choose a store carrying Cherokee Work wear products near you from the list that appears. The name of the nearest Cherokee Work wear affiliate store will appear first, as well as its location, its phone number and links to Google Maps and MapQuest.
You may want to call ahead to ensure that the store sells Cherokee Work wear brand scrubs and uniforms, as it's possible that the store sells other Cherokee brands, but not Cherokee Work wear.
