Quality & Compliances

For quality management we follow the following process:

For quality management we follow the following process:

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 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.
  • Lace panels are paired / matched.
  • Pre-shrunk elastic is always used for respective styles.

Cutting (Physical)

  • 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

  • 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.
