Making Fabric

There are 5 steps to make fabric. The first step of making fabric is buying the yarn. Second, is knitting. Third, is dyeing and finishing. The fourth step is checking. And the last step is relaxing the fabric. This process is managed in many different ways and there are too many variables to describe here. Either the factory buys the finished fabric or the factory manages each step in-house or using different sub contractors. If you are buying on FOB terms you don’t have to get involved. It is the factory’s responsibility. What you need to know, is that it takes at least two weeks to make fabric from scratch.

Fabric checking is important for you to understand and clarify with the factory. The last thing you want is faulty fabric. The first problem is that faulty fabric delays your production and the second problem is that it is hard to get replacement fabric or get your money back. A good factory has a four-point fabric checking system. As soon as your sewing factory informs you that the fabric arrived, ask them for the fabric checking report. Understanding fabric production is key to shortening garment manufacturing lead time. Here is a great blog post that goes into more detail about fabric checking calculations.
