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
print, which must be inspected. All rolls to be sampled will be randomly selected by the inspector.
Once a roll has been selected, no adjustments will be made.

SAMPLE PLAN

Lot Size Yards Inspection Yards Lots Size Meters Inspection Meters Percentage of Total Lot
0 – 2,500 not less than 500 0 – 2,300 not less than 460 20%
2,501 – 5,000 251 – 500 2,301 – 4500 230 – 450 10%
5,001 – 20,000 400 – 1,600 4,501 – 18,300 360 – 1465 8%
20,001 – 30,000 1,200 – 1,800 18,301 – 27,400 1,100 – 1,645 6%

All inspected rolls will be identified with an inspection tag. This tag may not be removed by
anyone prior to the production cutting.
