Fusing Temperature

apparel Fusing in fact is lamination of two ore more textile surfaces by using thermoplastic resins. Therefore temperature is the most important (but also the most critical factor for the application of fusing.

Microscopic appearance of Fibres

fiber Technical tests require skilled personnel who can handle and use the equipment and chemicals for the analysis of the textile fibres. Among microscopic tests and chemical tests, microscopic tests are mainly used for natural fibre. The test identifies the natural fibres more easily as compared to manmade ones. Synthetic fibres are very similar in appearance and the increase in the number of varieties makes it a little tough to distinguish the fibres even under a microscope. The longitudinal and c

How wool is made?

fiber Wool is possibly the oldest fiber known to humans. It was one of the first fibers to be spun into yarn and woven into fabric.

Evolution of Textile Industry

assorted spinning Textile industry evolved from being a domestic small-scale industry, to the status of supremacy it currently holds. The ?cottage stage? was the first stage in its history where textiles were produced on a domestic basis.

Zipper Sizes

apparel Zippers are always measured from "component to component" (end stops), regardless of zipper style. The illustrations below will assist you in determining the proper method for arriving at the desired zipper length.

Shedding machines

fabric weaving The angle which is formed by the raising threads with the threads remaining in low position is called shed. The shed must be as wide open as to permit the easy passage of the weft insertion element. The shed can be obtained by either moving the heald frames or by directly moving the heald frames through. The machines used to form the shed are cam machines, dobbies and Jacquard machines.

Product Liability and Safety Regulations

apparel Governments enforces very strict regulations about the safety standards on consumer products in order to ensure the well being of its people. When a consumer is hurt, or killed due to the fault of the product of the product or malfunction of the product, the consumer or his/her relatives may sue the retailer who sold the goods and/or the importer who imported the goods and /or the manufacturer who made the goods for a very large amount of money.

Warping and Selvedge

fabric weaving The arranging of yarn threads in long parallel lengths of equal tension, onto a beam in preparation for weaving.During the warping process cones of yarn are placed onto a rack called a creel. From this creel yarn passes through tension and spacing devices and through a leasing reed which separates the yarn threads and keeps them in the correct order before being wound onto a warping balloon.Selvedge means the edge of a fabric that is woven so that it will not ravel or fray.

Elements of Design

assorted In creating a design one of the components that interact is the element of design. The element and principles of design are flexible and should be interpreted within the context of current fashion. A design can be defined as an arrangement of lines, shape, colours and texture that create a visual image. The principles of design are the rates that govern how elements are combined. The elements are therefore the raw materials that must be combined successfully.
