Information Portal for Textiles

Textile School incorporates knowledge associated to textiles right from fibers to its end usage including processes, trade-offs, know-how and standards. The site is intended for all spectrum of users to learn and share the textile knowledge from a single platform.


Preparation of materials for garment production

Garment production is an organised activity consisting of sequencial processes such as laying, marking, cutting, stitching, checking, finishing, pressing and packaging

Lab Dips

A lab dip is a swatch of fabric test dyed to hit a colour standard. There are different matching systems followed in Labs such as Tube light matching, Sun light matching, Ultra Violet matching, Sodium light matching etc.

Weaving Looms

Weaving is the process of making fabrics by interlacing the threads lengthwise and width wise commonly known as warp and weft in a regular order. The operation is performed in a machine called a loom. Two sets of yarns are interlaced, almost always at right angles to each other. One, called the warp, runs lengthwise in the loom; the other, called the filling, weft or woof, runs crosswise. The raising and lowering sequence of warp threads in various sequences gives many possible weave structures.

Common Defects of Fabrics

Common Defects of Fabrics during manufacturing process includes back fabric seam impression, birds eye, bowing, broken colour pattern, colour out, colour smears, crease mark, drop stitching, dye streak in printing, hole, jerk in, knots, mixed yarn, mottled, needle line, open reed, pin holes, press off etc.

Speed Conversion Calculator

The speed of an object in an interval of time is the distance travelled by the object divided by the duration of the interval. Speed has the dimensions of a length divided by a time.

Yarn Count Conversion Calculator

Both yarn and thread are measured in terms of cotton count and yarn density. The online textile yarn count conversion calculator helps to convert between units of commonly used yarn counts.

Weaving Calculator

Weaving calculator meant for measuring Warp and Weft properties by supplying base parameters and thereafter allows to calculate the cost of Warp and Weft per volume.

Energy Conversion Calculator

Energy, is a scalar physical quantity. It is a derived unit of energy, work, or amount of heat. It is equal to the energy expended (or work done) in applying a force of one newton through a distance of one metre.

Frequency Conversion Calculator

Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time. The period is the duration of one cycle in a repeating event, so the period is the reciprocal of the frequency.
