Textile is the ancient branch of engineering. Now textile engineering study is becoming more demand-able then before. Because textiles have not only used for wearing but also hugely used in different sectors like as technical textile. Many research works are being done on textile. But doing research anything it needs huge information. Books have not alternative of information. But price of every book is out of range such like us third world country’s people. For fulfillment the demand of information I will give a list of textile books. All books I have collected from my friends and fans who are studying in different famous universities around the world. I think these books will be helpful for students, researchers, businessmen, entrepreneurs as well as all people who are interested to know about textile. 

Warning: If you want to get any book from the following list then you must have to publish Article or Assignment or Project work in this blog for promoting purpose. Without these please don't send email.

The presence of Calcium, Magnesium salt i.e bi-carbonates, sulphates, Chloride in water is called causes of hardness of water. Such soluble salt are chloride, nitrites, sulphates and bicarbonate of these metal heavy metal like Fe and Al also can tribute in the hardness of water. The water which contains these salt is called hard water. Hard water caused many problems during wet processing. There are two types of hardness: Temporary hardness and permanent hardness.

Water hardness testing
Hardness Test Method:
There are few methods for measuring water hardness. In this article I have explained three methods of measuring hardness of water.

a. Ammonia- Ammonium Chloride Buffer Solution:
Dissolve 67 gms. Ammonium Chloride to 570 ml concentrated Ammonia and then make up the solution to one Litre by distilled water.

b. Erichrome Black – T Solution:
Dissolve 75 ml Tri-ethanolamine to 25 ml Ethanol and then add 0.5 gm Erichrome Black – T in 100 ml volumetric flask.

c. 0.01M EDTA standard solution:
Dissolve 3.722 gms EDTA(Ethylene Diamine Terra Acetic Acid) to one Litre distilled water.

Take 100 ml of Sample in a Beaker + 5 ml (NH4)Cl buffer solution + 1-2 drops of Black – T and Titrate it against EDTA (0.01M)

1 ml of 0.01 M EDTA = 1 mg.
Total Hardness= Volume of EDTA * 10 ppm.

100 ml Sample are taken. But for ppm sample will be 1 litre, so the result will be 10 times more.

Normally solid dyed cotton garments are washed with bleaching agent which reduces the color. So, fading effect on garments is produced.

The working procedure are given bellow in step by step-----

Step 01:
  • A lot size of 1.2kg garments (denim) is considered.
  • Load the machine with water at liquor ratio of 1:10
  • Switch is on for running the machine.
  • Add De-sizing agent to the liquor @ 3gm/l
  • Start steam supply to raise the temperature up to 60oc
  • Continue the process for 20 min.
  • Drop the liquor.
Step 02:
  • A lot size of 1.2 kg garments (denim) is considered.
  • Load the machine with water at liquor ratio 1:10
  • Switch is on for running of machine.
  • Add caustic soda to the liquor @ 2%
  • Add Bleaching agent( Hypochlorus) to the liquor @ 5 ml/l
  • Add stabilizer to the liquor @ 2.5 ml/l
  • Add soda ash to the liquor @2%
  • Start steam supply to raise the temperature up to 80oc
  • Continue process for 70 minutes
  • Drop the liquor.
Step 03:
  • A lot size of 1.2kg garments (denim) is considered.
  • Load the machine with water at liquor ratio of 1:9
  • Add sodium hyposulphite@ 3gm/l
  • Switch is on for running of machine.
  • Start steam supply to raise the temperature up to 60oc
  • Continue this process for 5 min
  • Drop the liquor
Step 04:
  • A lot size of 1.2kg garments is considered.
  • Load the machine with water at liquor ratio of 1:5
  • Start machine running.
  • Add acetic acid to the liquor @2ml/l
  • Add softener @1gm/l
  • Start steam supply to raise the temperature up to 60oc
  • Continue this process for 5 min.
  • Drop the liquor.
  • Unload the garments.
Step 05:
  • Hydro extraction the garments to remove wash of excess water from the washed garments.
Step 06:
  • Load the garments
  • Set Temperature 750C to 850C
  • Time @ 35 to 40 minutes for hot dry
  • Time @ 10 minutes for cold dry
Precaution of washing
  • Measurement of chemical should be taken carefully.
  • Concentration, time, temperature should be maintained properly for uniform bleach action.
  • Proper neutralization after bleaching.
  • Proper making the samples for various concentration, time, temperature.
  • Proper drying should be maintained.
  • Wash hands frequently to reduce the risk of exposure to blood borne diseases.
  • Wear gloves if there is even a possibility you might have contact with another person’s body fluids.
  • After the removal of gloves or after exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, wash hands with antibacterial soap.
  • Wear gloves once and discard; do not attempt to wash and reuse.
  • Clothing or supplies contaminated with body fluids should be placed in doubled plastic bags and tied.

How to Sew Garments

How to Sew Garments
Shariful Islam Iman
BGMEA University of Fashion & Technology

Sewing is one of the important processes in garment making. This process is done by different sewing machine. Normally sewing involves fastening of fabrics, leather, furs or similar other flexible materials with the help of needle and threads. After receive the garments components from cutting section, all the garments parts are joined and sewn as sequentially. It is a basic work for making apparel.
Sewing Procedure:
Sewing operation is given step by step.

Input taken and Sample arrange:
  • Input taken will provide by planning department with ensure the shipment date, size, break-down according to manpower of that line and confirm the checklist sheet of store is ok.
  • As per input taken planner will provide sample from sample department.
  • AQC will select the PP sheet and other necessary papers in the mentioned style.
  • Input man collects size-wise information from cutting section for giving the requisition in store for accessories (label; button, twill-tape etc.)
  • From store it has to ensure all the accessories if the mentioned style is in the house.
  • As per requisition store will start to arrange the accessories.
  • One requisition is given for thread
  • Input man will collect the size wise input by counting which is confirmed by cutting section.
  • Pre-work, printing, embroidery and other parts have to give by accurate check and counting as per input quantity which will taken by sewing input man.
  • Input man put the input in rack by size-wise.
  • Store will provide all the accessories as per requirement of the inputted quantity and input man take accessories by counting.
In line work:
  • After getting all necessary things supervisor will start paper layout and take necessary actions to avoid the problems which can be affected during pick production line.
Layout submits:
  • Before start the production, supervisor submit the layout sheet in IE and maintenance department.
