Quality Process  

The quality control practices that we are following in our factory are given below:

 

Fabric Quality Check

Fabric is checked 100% for various defects like:

Weaving defects Holes
Printing / dyeing defects Water / crease marks
Width wise segregation Skew / torque
Colour variation    

All the fabrics are checked in the laboratory for

Count / construction Shrinkage Tear strength
Crocking (dry / wet) Appearance after wash (Garment 45 min. Cycle machine wash) Tensile strength
CF to washing CF to light Seam slippage

 

Trims

All trims are checked for durability and performance and are ensure for compliance with care instructions.

All trims are attached correctly using proper attachment methods.

Trim materials are checked to perform consistently with the base fabric performance with no differential shrinkage.

Join seams are kept neat and raw edges are removed.

Ribbon ends are heat-sealed.

Lace panels are paired / matched.

Pre-shrunk elastic is always used for respective styles.

 

Cutting (Physical)

   

CAD markers are set as per ratio required and width attained.

Layering is done on the basis of fabric weight / GSM and size / ratio.

Dye lot numbers are given on each layer cut, to keep track of lots cut at the packing stage, if needed.

Each dyelot is to be cut in ratio to maintain color consistency, when the goods finally reach the rack.

Each layer cut, is checked for cutting consistency and records are maintained.

 

 

Cutting (Technical)

All component parts of the garment are laid parallel to the warp (length) of fabric unless style warrants others positioning of parts.

All component parts of a garment are laid in one general area and are shade controlled.

Each layer edge is checked for unacceptable skew / torque.

All plaids, horizontal stripes and vertical stripes are matched as per the requirement of Buyer.

Lightweight fabrics or off grain fabric use to relax & make it tension free to prevent problems in stitching.

Any block or placement print is cut individually to ensure correct print appearance on the garment.

 

Stitching

Time and motion study is done before any style commencement.

R&D department does product engineering to increase productivity using folders & attachment also do all necessary requirement to maintain quality standard.

In-line quality check are maintained at each level and the same are followed religiously with regard to core aspects of stitching:

  • Needles
  • Threads
  • Seams

 

Needle Checking

We follow the broken needle policy with utmost importance in zero tolerance zone. All records are maintained for the same.

Needles are checked and replaced regularly in order to avoid needle damage and over heating.

Needles are compatible with the fabric and thread to avoid seam quality problems.

We ensure that compatible constructed fabrics are  made with corresponding ball point/sharp point needles.

 

Washing & Finishing

   

Three garments of each size and of each dyelot of a particular color are run through a 45 min. machine wash cycle and thereafter checked for any washing discrepancy.

Each dyelot is run through a 15 min. washing cycle under supervision of washing technician.

All the garments are given sufficient time to relax and dry thoroughly prior to packing.

Thread cutting, ironing, spotting and other finishing processes are done under strict quality control measures.

Each finishing process is done under the supervision of a senior Q.A. and all the garments go through 100% quality check.

All the garments are passed through a metal detecting machine.

100% garments are checked for:

  • Correct labeling, hangtag positioning and carton marking.
  • Off specs garments are corrected or removed.
  • Correct ratio packing.
  • Same dyelots within carton.
  • Quantity check in each carton as per the packing instruction.

 

Final Quality Inspection

All the packed garments are inspected 2.5AQL quality audit before forwarding goods to the buyer's Q.A. team.

Records are maintained for all these internal inspections.

 

Children Safety

Small parts/choking hazards: For children age 3 and under, anything which can pass through a choke tube is strictly avoided.

Garments with small parts embellishments as sequins, beads etc. are labeled with "WARNING...CHOKING HAZARD".

Accessory items with sharp points and edges are not used on children garments.

Garments are ensured to be free from all residual skin irritants using a pH controlled soap wash.

Lead and formaldehyde contents are regularly checked through nominated labs.

Contentious checking of Button pulling strength, sequence as per the buyer's requirement.
