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.

Inspection is the act of looking at something closely in order to learn more about it, to find problems, to see if rules are being followed and things are in their proper condition. Quality Assurance process the bulk pollution is examined before delivery to the customer to see if it meets the specifications. The consumers want to get high quality products in low price. The products should reach the consumers with right quality depends on the cost. Quality assurance covers all the process within a company that contributes to the production of quality products. Which is conduct form beginning to end of the process (or) shipment? The inspection is carried out by representatives of the current production and the result record on control chart. Which is a process to Assure the product quality Acceptable or not.
Garments inspection
Stages of Garment Inspection
The aim of garment inspection is to visually inspect articles at random from a delivery in order to verify their general conformity and appearance with instruction/description and/or sample received.

There are different types of inspection are done in garments industry following by inspectors as requirement of consumers.
  1. Pre-Production Check (PPC)
  2. Initial Production Check (IPC)
  3. During Production Check (DuPRO)
  4. Final Random Inspection (FRI)
1. Pre-Production Check (PPC):
This is done before production starts. Where then is a final verification of the material used; style, cut and workmanship of the garment or pre-production sample as per the customer Requirements.
2. Initial Production Check (IPC):
This is done at the start of production where a first batch of garments is inspected; to distinguish possible discrepancies/variation and to allow for the necessary corrections to be made bulk production. The inspection is a preliminary stage covering mainly style and general appearance, workmanship, measurements, quality of fabrics, components, weight, color and/or printing.
3. During Production Check (DuPro):
This is done during production to ensure initial discrepancies/variations have been rectified. This inspection is in fact the follow -up of the initial production check and is generally carried out a few days after the initial inspection, especially if discrepancies have been detected at that time.

4. Final Random Inspection (FRI):
This is carried out when the production of the total quantity of an order or partial delivery is completed. A sample lot will be selected from the order and a percentage of the garments will be inspected, this percentage usually being stipulated by the buyer. The AQL sampling inspection may be applied or another inspection system designed by the buyer.

Factoring: An Alternative to LCs in Apparel Industry

Factoring Finance in Apparel Sector: Guarantee of Secure Cash Flow and Business Growth
Tanvir Hossain
Reporter of Textile Tribune
Shahid Aziz Hall

It’s a short term, non-bank financing of accounts receivable. It’s a financial transaction in which a business sells its account receivable, example-invoices; to a third party commonly known as “FACTOR” at a discount and the factor buys the right to collect the money from the customers on behalf of the seller.

There are three parties directly involved, the factor, the person who sells the receivable and the debtor which has the liability to pay the seller. The sale of the receivable transfers the ownership of the receivable to the factor, delivering all the rights associated with the receivables.
The main policy of a factoring company is that the company will purchase the invoice and advance the seller money within 24 hours. The advance ranges from 80-95% of the value of invoice depending on the industry, the customer’s credit histories and other criteria. The factor collects money from the customers and pays the rest of the money to the seller minus a fee generally ranging from 2-6% assuming the collection risk.

Flow Chart of Factoring

Seller provides service to the customers

Seller sends the invoice to the factor

The seller receives cash on advance on the invoice of the seller from the factor

Factor collects full payment from the customer

Factor pays rest of the money minus a fee to the seller

Factoring in apparel sector: 
Factoring in apparel sector can ensure secure and fast cash flow in textile business. Business transaction in Apparel as well as textile sector is done by L/Cs which are becoming less popular as days are passing due to the complex terms and procedures. Factoring in this regard can eradicate the problem of cash flow as the business gets instant payment from the factor rather waiting for several months. And the company can expand business and the cash flow is secure. Factoring has already been frequently used in Apparel sector in INDIA,CHINA,VIETNAM,UK,USA and other countries. Its hig time to introduce Factoring in Bangladeshi Apparel sector for fast and secure business transactions.

Advantages over bank loan or L/Cs: 
Factoring is not like a bank provided loan and it does not create a liability on the balance sheet. Sometimes it’s considered as one of the most expensive form of financing but, it’s not always true. Yes, considering the rate of discount of factors against interest rate of bank loan, factoring costs more. But when someone does not qualify for a loan it doesn’t matter what rate is. Further bank does not provide service like factor does.

L/Cs have been using by the manufacturing and merchandising companies for quite some time but, factoring is also not a new concept. It’s been used since sixteen century in different forms. It’s time to introduce the concept of factoring in our country and many factoring companies are opening branches in Bangladesh.

In case of L/C there is time limit and the business has to open new L/C for different companies which is time consuming and costly. Importers have to provide sufficient security and required margin to confirm L/Cs from the bank and sometimes growing requirement for L/C margin goes beyond the financial ability of the importer.

Different non L/C mechanisms of trade payment like open account trade payment and documentary collection and factoring are being used progressively.

Worldwide scenario of factoring: 
In 2013 the total amount of international factoring in nearly 70 countries stood euro 357.23 billion and the amount of total factoring accounted for 2.23 trillion euro at the same time.

Factoring in Bangladesh: 
Though factoring is very popular in foreign countries, it’s yet to be introduced in Bangladesh. International chamber of commerce in association with Factors Chain International (FCI), Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Bangladesh Institute of Bank Management (BIBM) had organized a seminar recently at Westin Dhaka to reintroduce factoring in Bangladesh.

Some non-banking financial institutions like IDLC, Lanka Bangla, Prima Dollar and other companies have launched domestic factoring in Bangladesh.

Factoring is done so that the business can receive cash more quickly than waiting 30-60 days for a customer’s payment. International factoring is necessary for better and smooth trade finance and it is time to review cross-border factoring issue by focusing on cost-benefit and legal issues.

Different Types and Classification of Stitches

Different Types and Classification of Stitches
Noor Ahmed Raaz
Asst. Merchandiser
A.M.C.S Textile Ltd

Stitch types:
Every category of sewing machine produces a specific type of stitch depending on the number of needles, loppers and threads which combine to construct the stitch. Each of these configurations is known as stitch types and they are classified according to their main characteristics There are about seventy (70) types of stitch can be seen in common practice but among them 18 to 20 types of stitch are used in garments manufacturing industries. In tailoring purposes there are only two to three types of stitch are used. All stitches are classed in six (6) groups which are identified by the first of the three digits:

Stitch types are given below:

Stitch class – 100 (Single thread chain stitch): 
Stitches under this class are produced with single thread by intra-looping technique. All the stitches under this class are unsecured and used for temporary purposes. Starting and finishing end of the stitch under this class needs bar taking or back stitching to secure the stitches. Most common uses in blind stitching, hemming, button attaching, button holing, gathering, temporary positioning of garment components, etc. purposes.
Stitch type- 101
Stitch class – 200 (Hand stitch): 
Stitches under this class are also produced with single thread but by the use of special type of sewing machine. Stitch class – 200 can not be produced for longer length sewing. This class of stitches is used very rarely in the Ready Made Garments (RMG) sector as because they are very expensive to produce. They are used mainly for coat manufacturing. Stitch type – 209 is shown in diagram which is used in the lapel area.
Stitch type- 209
Stitch class – 300 (Lock stitch): 
Stitches under this class are produced by interlacing technique with two threads. The upper thread is called needle thread and the lower one is called bobbin thread. Stitch type – 301 is shown in diagram which is extensively used in domestic sewing machine, tailoring sewing machine, RMG sector sewing machine, for general sewing for attaching pocket, collar, cuff, etc components. Stitches under this class are naturally secured and shows good frictional resistance property. Its extensibility is about 30%, hence used extensively in Ready Made Woven Garments products.
Stitch type- 301
Stitch class – 400 (Multi thread chain stitch): 
Stitch class – 400 is produced by interlacing and interloping technique. The upper thread is called the needle thread and the lower one is called looper thread. Stitch class – 400 is stronger than stitch class – 300, hence used for joining heavy fabrics, side seam of trouser, etc purposes.
Stitch type- 401
Stitch class – 500 (Over edge stitch): 
Stitches under this class are produced with one or a group of more threads (one needle thread and two or more looper thread) and at least threads of one group round the edge of the fabric stop fraying i.e. threads from the edge of the fabric can not come out. The knife of the machine cuts the edge first producing a clear edge for seaming. Stitch under this class is sometimes called over locking, but actually it is over edge stitch. Sometimes it is used for decorative purpose. Extensibility is quite well (may be 300%) and the width of the stitch is about 3 to 5 mm. Stitch class – 504 is shown in the figure below:
Stitch type- 504
Stitch class – 600 (Covering chain stitch): 
Stitches under this class are formed with at least three groups of threads and threads of two groups are seen in both side of the fabric. Threads of first group are called needle thread and threads of second group are called top cover threads and threads of third group are called bottom cover thread. This type of stitch is so complex and sometimes usage of 9 threads can be seen. This type of stitch is used for sewing underwear, for attaching lace, braid, elastic, etc. It is also used for making cover stitch, decorative stitch and top stitching. Stitch class – 602 and 606 are shown in figure below:

Stitch type- 602 & 606
