Fabric Inspection and Control System

Fabric Inspection:
It is the responsibility of both the textile supplier and garment manufacturer to inspect all textiles to ensure their compliance with the buyer standard. Textile which are being exported to another country for use in the assembly of a finished product are required to be inspected by the buyer’s designed inspection service prior to shipment. It is the sole responsibility of the textile supplier to ensure that the textiles are inspected prior to shipment. For textiles which are to be assembled in the country of textile origin, inspection is required only if requested by the buyer. Once requested it is the responsibility of the textile supplier to ensure that the textiles are inspected prior to shipment. 
Fabric Inspection
The fabric control service will be divided in the following subgroups:

A. Pre-control: “feel” examination, appearance, verification of any unpleasant odorous, colors, shades, weight, listing and ending; verification of dye uniformity between center and selvedge by means of a special fabric strip “sleeve” and dimensional checking by means of a steam test, production of the shade continuity cards.

B. Control: All textile inspections will be conducted in accordance with the 4 point system. The control consists in checking of fabrics on appropriate machines, permitting complete tension free sliding and measuring of the fabric.

The pieces will always be processed in rolls or humpback, never folded in order to avoid permanent creases in the fabric.

Tension free measuring will be carried out electronically with or without metric labeling on the selvedge and the accuracy will be guaranteed with a maximum approximation of 0.5%. Measuring will be expressed in yards.

References for pattern and finishing will be certified by a fabric swatch indicated by the Garment conductor, colors by colors chart/shade chart. This sample will be reference sample taken from the first delivery of the production or a sample taken from a sample piece. Sample dimensions will be such as to permit verification of all characteristics, pattern, colors, etc. of the fabric to be inspected.
