Dyeing Methods

dyeing finishing weaving Dyeing can be performed using continuous or batch processes. Yarn dyeing is used to create interesting checks, stripes, and plaids with different-coloured yarns in the weaving process. Substances which cause these changes are called dyestuffs.

Broken Twills

fabric weaving A broken twill weave composed of vertical sections which are alternately right hand and left hand in direction. In Broken Twills, twills are constructed by breaking the continuity of any continuous twill weave. They are formed by reversing the pattern part way through the repeat. The Break can be achieved in different ways.

Bra Styling

apparel Todays Brassiers are made of many different materials including cotton, rayon, silk, spandex, polyester, and lace. They are available in many styles from cups that come without any padding (and are quite sheer) to those that add significantly to the size and shape of the cup. A woman can alter her silhouette by simply purchasing a brassiere with cups that are designed to render a specific shape.

Water Jet Weaving Machines

fabric weaving Water Jet machines are extensively used in East Asia. They are characterized in particular by high insertion performance and low energy consumption. These machines are produced only by few companies and are used for the manufacture of light and medium weight fabrics with standard characteristics and in water repellent fibre materials, primarily multi-filament synthetic yarns. They are characterized in particular by high insertion performance and low energy consumption.

Textile Finishing Processes

finishing The whole cycle of finishing consists of mechanical and chemical processes, which are used depending on the kinds and end uses of the fabric. Mechanical processes include drying, calendaring, schreinering, embossing, sueding, raisingetc and chemical processes include in the application of special substances on the fabric, impregnation with size, starch, dextrin and other polymeric substances.

Finishing

finishing Finishing encompasses chemical or mechanical treatments performed on fibre, yarn, or fabric to improve appearance, texture, or performance. Some of the fabric finishing methods are-Brushing, Shearing, Pressing, Raising, Beetling, Calendaring, Folding, etc. Finishing can be carried out in 3 stages i.e. Pre-treatment, coloration and Finishing.

Hand Stitch Types

apparel Hand stitches have many uses. Before the sewing machine, garment-making was done exclusively by hand. However, in today’s home sewing world of sophisticated sewing machines and sergers, few garments are made entirely by hand.But, many home-sewn and custom-made garments continue to have some type of hand stitching used primarily as finishing techniques (hemming, securing fasteners, etc.). Thus, knowing and understanding the proper stitch to use is important to the item’s appearance as well as

Support Operations for Garment Manufacturing

apparel As is the case with many industries, garment manufacturing requires multiple support operations to enable production in the facility. Many of these support operations are common to any manufacturing industry, such as administrative functions, facility and equipment maintenance, and boiler and backup power generator operation.

Air Jet Weaving Machines

fabric weaving The Air Jet weaving machines are the weaving machines with the highest weft insertion performance and are considered as the most productive in the manufacturing of light to medium weight fabrics, preferably made of cotton and certain man-made fibres. These machines are the ideal solution for those who want to produce bulk quantities of customized fabric styles. The weaving widths range generally from 190 to 400 cm.

Seam Types

apparel Seam types are the place where two pieces of fabric are joined by application of a series of stitches or stitch types with a defined geometry. Over the years there are a number of different types of seams that have been developed to do different jobs. Many have largely been superseded by the development of machine stitches that finish as you sew them, and by the development of the over locker (or serger in some parts of the world), it is useful to know some of the basic seams types and finishes.
