Textile Labelling Act

assorted The Textile Labelling Act is a regulatory statute. It requires that consumer textile articles bear accurate and meaningful labelling information to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions.

Industrial enzymes in textile production and application

dyeing finishing Enzymes are living biological substances that can help speed up any chemical reaction without itself being reduced. But, they work better under certain temperature and pH value. Therefore, these are also called as biological catalysts. Since textiles industry uses many such chemical reactions, enzymes today are a vital part of the textile production system. Applications like pectinases, lipases, proteases, catalases, and xylanases are used in textile processing.

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.

Draw frame Functions

spinning spun-yarn yarn Carded Slivers are fed into the Draw-Frame and are stretched/Straightened and made in to a single sliver. Also fibre blending can be done at this stage. The cans that contain the sliver are placed along the draw-frame feeder rack, usually including eight pairs of cylinders (each pair is above the space occupied by a can),the lower cylinder is commanded positively, while the upper one rests on the lower one in order to ensure movement of the relative sliver that runs between the two.

Establishing a Library

apparel Factories with motivated and productive workers often outperform competitors.Establishing a library for the benefit of workers is an excellent way for a factory to demonstrate that it cares about its staff and to build goodwill in the community.

Care Labels

apparel Care labels are care instructions on garments. Symbols are written on care labels, attached to clothing to indicate how a particular item should best be cleaned. Textile and apparel labels can help you consider alternative choices and make better buying decisions if you take time to read them. Permanent Care Labels (PCL) use symbols to explain how to care for wearing apparel and home sewing fabrics, so consumers need to learn the basic symbols.

Product Design

apparel Garment designers begin to materialize their ideas using hand sketches, off-the-rack garments, technical drawings, three-dimensional draping on dress forms, or computer-aided design (CAD)


apparel Merchandising is the department which mediates marketing and production departments. It is Space optimization through effective Brand/Package allocation, focusing on gaining first position, providing greatest exposure of brands to all consumers, creating a consistent, orderly and clean appearance for the products, maximizing the use of POS to increase consumer awareness of brand and promotions.

Textile Finishing Processes

finishing The whole cycle of finishing consists of mechanical and chemical processes, which are used depending on the kinds and end uses of the fabric. Mechanical processes include drying, calendaring, schreinering, embossing, sueding, raisingetc and chemical processes include in the application of special substances on the fabric, impregnation with size, starch, dextrin and other polymeric substances.
