How it's produced

Ever wondered how garments and home textiles are produced?

In order to create a garment or home textile, many processes, from many parts of the world, are typically involved. Below we’ve outlined some of the major steps in the production chain. You’ll also learn where some of the challenges lie in terms of producing ecologically safe products, fair working conditions within factories and the use of environmentally friendly processing technologies.

Dry Spinning

A mechanical process that uses no water or solvents to produce filaments or yarn (e.g. cotton).

Wet Spinning

The process of making filaments or yarn in the presence of water or a solvent (e.g. viscose).

Fabrics

Fabrics are made of yarn or fibres using the process of weaving, knitting or bonding. They are used for garments or home textiles.

Dyeing & Finishing

Dyeing is the process during which color is applied to fibres, yarn, fabrics or garments.

Finishing is any mechanical or chemical process applied to improve the performance of the fabric (enhancing appearance or touch, etc.).

Making up (of products)

The process of assembling fabrics and accessories into garments/apparel or home textiles. Various steps, such as cutting, sewing and other processes are involved.

Vertical Facility Site

A vertical facility site is dealing with more than one production stage, e.g. spinning, weaving, dyeing/ finishing, and making up of garments.

Accessories

Typically include such items as sewing yarn, buttons, zippers, fasteners, interlinings, fillings, elastics, shoulder pads etc., used for making up of apparel/garments and home textiles.

Logistics

The process of planning, implementing and controlling the efficient, cost-effective flow and storage of textile goods, in-process inventory, and related information from point-of-origin to point-of-consumption.
