One page for Visual Assessment of Fabric inspection.

Please keep this document in the area of visual color assessment for quick reference. Please refer to current color material for details.

Color discrimination skills
* All color assessors must have color discrimination skill represented by a score of 16 or less using the Unseaworthiness 100 Hue test. Annual retesting is required.
Constant condition suggested

Drying Process for Natural soft hand

natural dry

A- Heat up Cycle
Load damp garments into dryer after centrifugal extraction
This will take about 5-10 minutes to raise to maximum drying temp of around 80 ·90 C

B- Main Drying Cycle
To dry garment at the max temp until it is approximate 70 % dry
Duration could varies according to the fabric and garment construction

C- Cool down Cycle
To avoid over dry the garments, the garments should be dry and soft but not brittle
This could be achieved by adjusting the steam valve or the exhaust duct opening.
Duration could varies according to the fabric and garment construction

Extra care needed while Printing, Embroidery, Washing if exists in garments

These individual sections are acting like sub-stations. They work independently but you should keep strong follow up over their work. You have to have a practical constant about print / embroidery & washing plant. Factory merchandiser must pay his concentration about mentioned stations and should keep all swatches for further reference. You cannot run your production well without these as Q.A / production people will ask you for those swatches in time and out of time.

Though you may found different color / size of print & embroidery but you should have each type approval from concern person before insert into production line. Whenever any wearer exists these functions, please do following process from the development stage: 

Print: - Almost style has print in different part of garments. Though, its looks simple but we always maintain a hard long procedure indeed.
Below mentioned steps should be followed to go ahead with print section-
1. Make a clear status of print. (If possible with sketch)
2. Relay T-sheet / material list through mail & hard copy.
3. Let them understand the detail. (Proto > SMS >Bulk)

4. Ask them to provide consumption chart of Ink. Of course, they should mention related material such catalyst, gum, rubber, mesh etc.
5. Provide them develop skin (BD / Buyer) and remind them to keep those in sequence for further.

Daily work practice in merchandising department

Put the frame of work to make the day a positive day. Cause if you are going to change your carrier you need to start immediately.

Here beneath write down the steps those merchandisers should follow at a glance:
1. Getting pro-to sample request from buyer/buyers representative
2. Preparing material list/ getting material list from third party.
3. Conveying detail of sample to pattern, CAD, sample room & sample Q.A, buyer Q.A etc.
4. Conveying sample material details to material department for arranging.

5. Details change and articulation and styling descriptions meeting /providing in-term information of change about sample to Pattern, CAD, sample & sample Q.A and material department.

Chronicle sequence to evaluate the garment industry

Dresses are part and parcel of human life and dress making date had been started before thousands of years. Mechanized sewing machines lent the greatest impetus for easy dress making and large scale garment production eventually.

Let’s find the chronicle sequence to evaluate the garment industry step by step.

The Charka, most commonly known as the spinning wheel, was a wheel of prosperity for early spinners. For them, it represented a wheel of life as spinning the Charka to make spun yarn was their only means of earning a living.

It is assumed that human civilization greatly progressed with the advent of wheel. It was true for human clothing too, as signified by the Charka.

Groundwork to step in Bulk Production

After successfully accomplishment of Proto / SMS / PP / Size set samples; here come to the right time to execute bulk production. We can say it is the right time to show up your performance and total business depends on your integrity, attention, hard working and strong follow up as well.

Basically we should have quite preparation or homework before step in production line for a particular style: -
1. Review SMS comments
2. Review bulk t-sheet and if found any unclear point please ask to update soon.
3. Review reference samples as well PP sample
4. Arrange a meeting with pattern maker for correction in pattern

5. Have to review marker with approved sample to ensure all parts are exists
6. Production plan set up and justification of achievement
7. Prepare material list
8. Place order to supplier and confirm order (through P O) and it’s on   time arrival
9. Approval of PP sample
10. Prepare and review size set
11. By preparing mockup for correction

How to secure your Zipper

Elegant use of Zipper: As we know zipper is a decorative and essential portion of any garments but sometime these devices may make panic due to some unexpected reasons. Let’s find the following reasons to erase those unexpected hassle. 

1) If slider caught in fiber:
Slider may grip on fabric or thread when try to open or close. Trying to release the slider by forcing will only deteriorate this trouble. First pull the fabric back and forth a few times to get it out or press the slider back; erase the trapped fabric or thread. Do not force back but get back softly, if the slider chews deeply into the fiber. To remove this hassle, please take extra care to keep away from the opportunity of the zipper getting caught during sewing the zippers on garments.

2) Uneven closing and opening:
If a slider spoiled by forcing that doesn't close or open efficiently. That time use the lubricating spray or paraffin oil to the front and back part of the slider and pull the slider up and down several times until it works easily. Polish the zipper teeth with a bar glycerin soap, oil pastel (Vaseline), candle wax, window cleaner or pencil graphite etc.
