Garments production is the main part and most important part for gaining success for garments because a garment could be known for its good quality of products and design. If a garment can produce good products then its market value increases and people show interest in that garment’s products.
Garments production mainly produces fabrics and clothing apparel. Production is a sequential process of collecting cotton, making fabrics, laying, marking, cutting, stitching, checking and finishing process. This process starts with normal cotton and finishes with making clothing appeal and shipping it to the buyers. For making good production and good and designed clothing appeal, the production team should be the finest team and the production machine and other tools must be most improved and updated to make the clothing appeal look attractive and comfortable.
Receiving Cotton: Receiving cotton is the first part of a garments production team. Garment collects the best quality of cotton from the suppliers and starts the process of making the fabrics. The fabric quality depends on the quality of cotton and if the fabric quality is good, the clothing or the cloth made from the fabrics will be good and attractive to buy. In our company, we reserve the best cotton from all over the world and make fabric from it. That’s why our clothing looks most attractive.
Converting Cotton into Fabrics: After receiving cotton, our garments production team sends it to another section, where the team converts the cotton into fabrics using labor and machinery. This process needs to be done very carefully for making the best fabrics for clothing. A simple mistake can make the fabric quality worst and the worst fabric will make the clothing worst for the buyer.
Receiving Fabrics: Receiving fabrics from another section, the team starts its main process of making cloth, but first, the team checks its quality and quantity for making the best clothing. When the checking is done and the fabric is ready, the team starts the next process of making cloth.
Fabric Relaxing: This process helps the fabric to relax for a certain period before the next process being started. This is an important process for fabrics because there were so many steps and processes before making the fabrics and much pressure and tension were going on those steps and processes. The relaxing also helps the fabric to shrink its maximum size so that during customer use minimizes further shrinkage. The garments can also use quality assurance into the process to make sure it meets customer standards. This process is a spot-checking process using garments labor or machines to make sure the color, quality, and fabric are according to the buyer or customer’s interest.
Spreading, form lay-out and cutting: After the relaxing process is done the fabrics are transferred to the spreading, cutting and form layout section where the team spread the fabrics, form the layout and cut the fabrics according to the layout to make the perfect size of the cloths.
The spreading process helps to:
- Allow fabric defects.
- Control the tension during fabric cutting.
- And cut the fabric according to the size.
Laying, Marking, and Cutting: Laying in the process of laying the large pieces and fit into the small ones. This process saves a lot of money by cutting lots of pieces at the same time and simultaneously. This process also needs a lot of concentration for cutting the pieces in the same size according to the height and width.
Marking is the process to mark the fabrics according to their size which was given by the buyer or fixed by the garments. This plan uses a full-size pattern and arranges it in a single maker paper which is to lay on the fabrics for cutting the fabrics according to the sizes and design. This process can be done manually or using the computer. It has to be the most concentrated part because a single mistake can change the blueprint of the fabrics and change their shapes and design into another shape.
Cutting according to size is also an important task to do. The fabrics must be cut according to the sizes to reduce company loss. When the fabric is cut very few can be rectified by serious defects. This process can be done by a knife cutting machine.
Embroidery and screen printing: Embroidery and screen printing are two different parts and are done by different sectors of garments.
Embroidery is the customer’s choice. This sector is only used if the buyer wants to make the outfit or the cloth according to the buyers’ design. This process used to be done by the machines. This process can be done by 10 to 20 styles, designs, and uses of different machines. The buyer can request to add their company logo on it if the buyer wants a logo rather than the garments to design a logo on the clothing according to the buyer’s choice.
Screen printing is also a buyer’s choice but the garments can add their printing on the cloth. This process is to add paint base graphics on the fabrics to look attractive and well designed. This process can be only done when a large number of products need printing because it’s costly to work to do.
Stitching: This process is done after cutting the fabric according to its size to make a good outfit. This process is done by the workers using a sewing machine. This process is the manufacture of clothing, joining together, and making an outfit.
Checking: Checking or inspecting the product is one of the most important parts of garment production. This process is used by the inspection team and their work in finding the mistakes or defective products. If they find any defective products, they cancel the product from the list and store the faultless and effective products for delivery.
Spot cleaning and laundry: Spot cleaning is the process of identifying manufacturing defects and also cleaning the cloth to wash its dust. Cleaning is a costly thing to do, if the buyer requests to clean the products and the buyer wants to pay the washing cost then the garments clean those products. If garments are making their design of products then the garments bear the cleaning cost.
Laundry is the process to make the products look goods, well decorated, and attractive.
Packing, Cartooning, and Shipping: After a long process of making clothes, packing comes at the last part. Package making according to the size of the product is tough work to do. Packaging the goods makes the products look decorated and cartooning is used to minimize the damages. The packages can be done according to the buyer’s instructions or using the buyer’s given logo. Garments could be made their packages using the company logo.
Shipping is the full and final process of Garments production. Every garment has shipping services. When the products are ready to deliver, the garment uses its shipping services and delivers the products to the customer. The shipping cost could be bear by the garments or taken from the buyer.
