Since 2015, we have been using satin fabric to produce exquisite dress designs. However, throughout these years, we faced several challenges and problems associated with using different types of silky satin fabric for our production. Following are some of the typical issues we concluded after utilizing the stock fabric from our supplier.
One of the most significant challenges we faced during the production process is the fabric color difference. In some cases, the same roll of fabric had two different colors at the beginning and end of the roll. In other cases, the bulk fabric color turned out to be different from the sample or previous productions, which was not identified during the fabric inspection. The result was that over 49 pieces of dresses had color difference on the front and back during the final inspection. We promptly informed our client and proceeded to purchase another roll of fabric to remake these 49 pieces of dresses. As the shop did not have the same batch of fabric available, the colors of these 49 pieces were slightly different from previous orders. We added a sticker on the polybag of each dress, notifying our client’s warehouser accordingly. While we understand the difficulty in avoiding color difference between different batches of bulk fabric, we will choose the most similar batch and inform our clients before proceeding. We recognize that improving our fabric inspection process is essential to prevent similar issues from happening in the future.
Another challenge we faced during production is when the bulk fabric turned out to be thinner than the confirmed sample made before. This is a common issue that can be difficult to identify during a fabric inspection, especially if the sample fabric and bulk fabric are not from the same batch. To address this, we keep a small piece of every sample fabric we work with in our records. We can then compare the sample fabric with the bulk fabric during the inspection process. When we identify such an issue, we promptly inform our clients and send a small piece of the fabric for their review. We understand the importance of delivering high-quality garments and do everything possible to maintain transparency at every stage of the production process.
The third challenge we faced during production is the issue of water or oil marks on fabric. This is a common challenge for all types of satin fabric and is especially evident during the summer months. For certain special types of silky satin fabric, the marks may be more noticeable than others. To ensure that the goods produced are clean, we wash them before packing. During the packing process, our workers wear gloves to avoid any marks on the fabric. To date, we have used over 35 different types of satin fabric for production and thus, we have extensive knowledge about the fabrics that are best for production and those that require additional care during the production process.
As a women’s clothing manufacturer, we have faced numerous challenges during production, some of which can be resolved, while others cannot. However, we firmly believe that the quality of our products is central to our business and strive to maintain it at all costs. We place emphasis on quality, not only for the satisfaction of our clients but also to uphold our integrity as a brand. Our unyielding commitment to excellence motivates us to overcome any hurdle and deliver the best possible product to our clients.
