Function of Garment Finishing:
1. Garments Washing:
Let me elaborate the same, once garments out from the sewing machine first step we take generally is washing. To wash bulk garments we follow the Buyer’s comments, we wash the garments as per Buyer’s requirements like if they want Normal wash then we do the same using only water. If the Buyer needs a soft hand feels or chemical wash on a garment then we use chemicals during washing.
2. Garments Checking:
After washing 2nd function is checking, once garments come from the washing department for the checking department, then a team starts to check garments, whether the stitching is properly done, or is there any spots on the garment. If they find any spot they remove it using chemicals and if there is a major stitching problem they return back it to the sewing department to rectify the same.
3. Garments Pressing:
Now the 3rd function is pressing (Ironing) once the garment comes to pressing the department pressmen start pressing the following required measurements and Buyer comments. If Buyer needs hard press, flat or light steam press accordingly pressing done by pressmen.
