The7 Basic Steps Of Workshop Shirt Production
Today, Thailand is one of the leading manufacturers of garments and apparel in the Eastern Hemisphere. The uniforms that you wear in offices or schools have gone through several processes to be in their final shape. Have you ever wondered how are they made? Here are the basic steps between the fabric and the making of a shirt.
- Step 1: The garment factories receive several qualities of fabrics that go into the making of clothes. Cotton, cotton blends, viscose, polyester, and polyester blends are some of the common types of fabrics used for workshop shirt production (ผลิตเสื้อช๊อป, which is the term in Thai), to make the uniforms more breathable and easier to work in.
- Step 2: The fabric that is received is not yet ready for garment making. Both automatically with the help of machines or manually spinning or feeding the fabric, helps it “relax” and reduces chances of shrinkage when used by you.
- Step 3: In this step, the fabric is finally laid down and cut into masses of plies with the help of manual or automatic cutting equipment.
- Step 4: The next procedure is laying these pieces of fabric and the decided shapes and sizes are manually or mechanically marked. This includes deciding where the pockets, lines, and trims should be.
- Step 5: This is one of the most crucial steps as after this hardly any altercations are made. This is also one of the most labor-intensive steps. The marked fabrics are now cut according to types, sizes, designs, and so on. They are then sewed with the help of industrial sewing machines. One of the efficient methods that industries follow is where one worker sews all the collars onto the cut pieces, one takes charge of the buttons, and so on. In client specified cases, there are certain specialized stations to design workshop uniforms or produce aprons as order (รับผลิตผ้ากันเปื้อน, which is the term in Thai). After this, every cloth goes through a quality check and the faulty ones are discarded.
- Step 6: These garments now go through a commercial laundering process where chemicals are applied to get rid of any mark caused by the previous step.
- Step 7: Finally controlled heat and pressure is applied to the shirts, aprons, or whichever the finalized product is, and is steamed and ironed for the fresh look of the finished product.
After these various procedures, these garments are finally packed and shipped as required by clients.
