Process Flow Chart of Garment Finishing Section

Garment finishing consists of a series of finishing operations performed in the garment to improve its aesthetics, handle and functional properties. The processing operations can be either or both mechanical and chemical in nature, which are performed in stitched garments as single or batch. Several finishing techniques applied to the fabric can be applied to manufactured garments. However, specialty machines are needed for garment finishing operations. In addition, many of the finishing operations may not be economical to perform in garment form. Hence, it is imperative to complete the finishing operations in fabric form unless there are unique features that can only be added in the garment form or incorporation of any functionality to the garment.
