Garment Inspection

apparel It becomes necessary to maintain the quality right from the production stage in order to deliver a satisfactory final product to the consumer with the right quality which in turn results in getting continuous orders from the same customers.

Timeline of Manmade Fibers

fiber A useful filament was not produced until the last part of the 19th century, when Swann and de Chardonnet extruded a solution of cellulose nitrate (collodion) through small holes (spinnerets). These pioneer manmade fibres were replaced by rayon fibres which were spun from an alkaline cellulose xanthate solution (viscose), which were in turn supplemented by cellulose acetate and many synthetic fibres.

Kapok or Capok Fibres

fiber spinning Kapok/Capok fibre is one of the natural cellulosic fibres which grow on the kapok plant. It has a hollow body and a sealed tail, which are desirable features of candidates for functional textiles of this nature. However, the low volume weight of kapok is (specific density 0.29g/cm3), and the short length and smooth surface of the fibres, causing poor inter-fibre cohesion, have prevented kapok from being processed by modern spinning machines.
