Sea and Air Freight

apparel assorted Although most orders for garments are placed by buyers on FOB basis, with buyers to pay for freight at the shipping destination, it is still necessary for the shipper or the agent to know how to calculate sea freight and air freight as buyers always need to know how much freight the merchandise cost per dz. If you are required to sell on CIF basis, (with the shipper to prepay for freight at the shipping port) you will need to calculate the freight accurately for your own costing

Draw frame Functions

spinning spun-yarn yarn Carded Slivers are fed into the Draw-Frame and are stretched/Straightened and made in to a single sliver. Also fibre blending can be done at this stage. The cans that contain the sliver are placed along the draw-frame feeder rack, usually including eight pairs of cylinders (each pair is above the space occupied by a can),the lower cylinder is commanded positively, while the upper one rests on the lower one in order to ensure movement of the relative sliver that runs between the two.

The Sketching Schematics

apparel Sketching is an important tool for any sewer—it serves as a road map for all phases of garment creation, from fabric and color selection to actual construction. If you can sketch, you can record fashions seen on the street, work out design details, and communicate your ideas to others.

Staple Yarn Spinning

spinning spun-yarn yarn 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.

Simplex Frame and its Parts

spinning spun-yarn yarn The chief function of simplex frame is the attenuation of sliver. Insertion of protective twist in order to hold the fine strand of sliver. Winding of roving into a package that can be transported, sorted, donned on ring spinning machine.After carding the cotton is passed through draw frames. The draw frame draws the cotton inot thick strands.These are then spun inot thinner strands on hte simplex frame spindles. The output of the simples frame is fed to the ring frame spindles which complete t

Manmade /Artificial fibres

fiber Man-made fibres are fibres in which either the basic chemical units have been formed by chemical synthesis followed by fibre formation or the polymers from natural sources have been dissolved and regenerated after passage through a spinneret to form fibres. These fibre came to success when the researchers obtained a product by condensation of molecules presenting two reactive aminic groups with molecules characterised by two carboxylic reactive groups.

Cotton Fibers and Its Properties

fiber Cotton is a seed fiber, meaning the fiber grows from seeds. It is perhaps the most important of all fibers.

Acrylic the Artificial Wool Fibers

fiber Acrylic can be thought of as artificial wool. It is made from the unlikely combination of coal, air, water, oil and limestone.


apparel ?Bundling? is the process of disassembling the stacked and cut pieces and reassembling them in production lots grouped by garment unit, colour dye lot, and number of garments

The Sketching Process

apparel Fashion sketching not only involves the act of drawing an initial idea but also the process of considering and developing the idea across the pages of a sketchbook. It is always best to have an idea of what you want to draw. In many respects a fashion sketch is a problem-solving process, which brings together the visual elements of articulating an idea in its purest form. This can mean recording a sudden idea before it is lost or forgotten, or capturing a moment in time, such as observing a deta
