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.

Feeding Systems

Material feed is the controlled movement of the material being sewn from one stitch position to the next. Different feeding mechanisms available are for sewing fabrics. Some of them are Manual feed, Feed dog, Drop feed, Needle Feed (Upper pivot needle Feed, Central pivot needle Feed, Parallel drive needle Feed), Wheel feed, Rotary feed, Upper Feed(Vibrating Presser Foot, Alternating Presser Foot, Top Feed, Jump Foot, Walking Foot, Spring action asking Foot, Driven walking Foot, Wheel feed.

Staple Yarn Spinning

The larger part of staple fibre, approx. 33 mio tons are processed in short staple spinning. This part of the spinning industry therefore is of great significance in the world of textile production.

Process of Ring Spinning

Re-Arranged Twills

These twills are obtained by arrangement of a continuous twill either warp way or weft way. There arrangement is normally done in a particular order or sequence. Rearranged twills are of two types Satin/sateen weaves and Corkscrew weaves.


Nylon does not absorb water – this is great for some uses, but also means that nylon fabric and movement combine to create static electricity.

Volume Conversion Calculator

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by some closed boundary or shape occupies or contains.

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.

Bandwidth Conversion Calculator

Bandwidth is a measurement of bit-rate of available or consumed data communication resources expressed in bits per second or multiples of it.

Illuminance Conversion Calculator

Illuminance is the total luminous flux incident on a surface, per unit area. It is a measure of how much the incident light illuminates the surface, wavelength-weighted to correlate with human brightness perception.

Weight Conversion Calculator

Weight of an object is the force on the object due to gravity. The unit of measurement for weight in the International System of Units (SI) is the Newton.
