An ILO study on workers in developing countries found that food of poor quality (e.g. iron deficient) causes a productivity loss of $ 5 billion per annum in South East Asia, while providing a goo

Fabric Identification for Garment Making

apparel fabric The vast variety of fabrics available today, makes their identification important.We know that variety is created by using different fibres in combination. Knowledge of the fibre content of a fabric is therefore necessary to know its suitability,use and care. Labels and sales persons are not always able to guide us.Fabric samples,Fabric specification, lead times are some of the ways to identify the fabric.

Woven Fabrics

fabric weaving Woven fabrics are made by using two or more sets of yarn interlaced at right angles to each other. Much variety is produced by weaving.

Methods of Fusing

apparel All the descriptions of the fusing processes that have been included ,have represented it as a single piece of interlining, laid resin side down,on a single piece of garment fabric ,laid right side down. This is referred to as single fusing and it is the safest in the sense that it is easiest to set the press conditions to achieve the correct temperature at the glue line.Some other methods of fusing in garment contruction are Reserve fusing,Sandwich fusing, double fusing

Blow Room Functions

spinning spun-yarn yarn Blow room is the starting of the spinning operation where the fibre is opened, cleaned, mixed , micro dust removed and evened thus passed to carding machine without increasing fibre rupture, fibre neps , broken seed particles and without removing more good fibres. The basic functions of blow room are opening, cleaning, dust removal, blending and evenly feeding the material on the card.

Sewing Needles

apparel A sewing needle is a long slender tool with a pointed tip. The needle must be able to penetrate the material being sewn, by pushing the yarns aside according to the application, without damaging it. The various parts of the needle are: The shank, The shoulder, The blade, Long Groove, Short Groove, The eye, The point and the Tip.

Finishing Technical Textiles

non-apparel While using normal fibres to produce technical textiles it is imperative that high tech functional finishes are imparted to them to make them functionally superior and relevant to the end use application such as anti-bacterial, anti-static, UV protective, thermal, or biodegradable functions - are playing an increasingly important role. Since technical textiles are generally not fashion oriented, performance requirements and technical specifications determine the success of a product.Therefore fi

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.
