White Swan originated in New York, in 1916, as a high-quality nursing uniform manufacturer. Later, the company merged with Meta, another well-known name in uniforms. In the 1990s, the companies became part of Dowling Textiles which made it possible to manufacture and expand their line of quality products at affordable prices. Today, White Swan is one of the best known brands for uniforms of all kinds including chef wear. They cater to both men and women, and their top priority is to provide comfortable and functional products at reasonable prices. They are the market leader in high-quality solids for hospitals, schools and clinics, as well as fashionable print scrubs,  Tru-Cord soft cotton corduroy scrubs, men’s and women’s lab coats and chef wear.    White Swan’s Fundamentals are 65/35 poplin with Soil Release.

Medical uniforms, scrubs and lab wear were originally designed for protecting the body during medical procedures.  Today, as nurses, hospitals and clinics try to establish their own unique identity, scrubs become a more important style statement. There are scrubs for pediatrics, veterinary and oncology departments.   “Uniform” no longer means starched, white and solemn.  Uniforms have become a reflection of one’s personality, an encouraging message to patients, a way to identify different departments within large medical facilities and, therefore, a more important matter of fashion and style.

White Swan offers lab coats in materials like Performance Poplin with Soil Release Finish, Cotton/Polyester Requisite with Soil Release Finish, Fine Line Twill with Soil Release Finish, Super Blend Twill with Soil Release Finish, and many others. Tops, pants and printed wear are also available in different fabric blends, shapes and sizes, including plus.

White Swan is always introducing more comfort and trendy designs for customers. They make constant effort to provide a larger variety without compromising the quality of their products. They blend their 100 years of experience as an industry manufacturing uniforms with the latest fabric, design and technology. More information about the company and its various products are available on the World Wide Web.

Nursing Professionals and Cherokee Uniforms

Medical uniforms and specifically nurses’ uniforms have evolved through the years, but have emerged as a very important part of the personality of the nurse. The historical starched white uniform signified a solemn discipline, compassion and caring. It was called called a “fever proof uniform” and covered almost the entire body of the nurse. Interestingly, however, the nurse never wore gloves or mask. The 1840’s saw new nursing uniforms which depicted the patriarchal constraints within which nurses worked and dressed. In fact, the uniform signified the dress of a female servant of the time. Fast forward to today. How times have changed. The new uniforms worn by nurses are called scrubs, offer bright colors, designs, encouraging words and a whole host of pant styles to fit all shapes, sizes and personalities.

Cherokee nursing uniforms

Cherokee has been one of the top brands of women’s apparel since 1972. Both comfortable and fashionable, Cherokee’s medical scrubs are available in solids and prints at very affordable prices.
