Fabric Inspection Guidelines

Fabric inspection focuses on fault/defect rate color, end to end and edge to middle shading, hand/handle, and appearance. The client will select the appropriate fault rate and standard to determine the acceptance of each shipment. This will minimize the quantity of panels or garments rejected for fabric faults, thereby ensuring the quality of the finished goods.

Fabric Sampling Plan

The following sampling plan lists the minimum quantity of fabric for each pattern, colorway, or
