Garment dyeing is a technology. Where ready-made garments are subjected to the dyeing process. It is almost similar to fabric dyeing. But in fabric dyeing the process is applied before making the garments and in garments dyeing the process is applied after making the garments. There are some difference between garments dyeing and fabric dyeing.
Advantages of garments dyeing over the fabric dyeing:
In the garment industries, garment dyeing is the new technology. The popularity of garments is increasing day by day due to some advantages of dyeing over the fabric dyeing. Today, I would like to discuss about the advantages of garments dyeing over the fabric dyeing.
The advantages of garments dyeing over the fabric dyeing are given bellow-
1. The cost of garments dyeing is comparatively lower the fabric dyeing.
2. In the process of garments dyeing, the possibility of shade variation among components is less than the fabric dyeing.
3. In the garments dyeing needed fewer amounts of dye and chemical. So here lower liquor ration is used the fabric dyeing.
4. Time required for garments dyeing is comparatively less than fabric dyeing.
5. In garments dyeing process old garments may be re-dyed. That’s why like as new garments. But in fabric dyeing it’s not possible.
6. During consumption of garments 15% extra fabric is calculated. In case of fabric dyeing, this 15% additional fabric is also dyed. But in case of garments dyeing, this 15% extra fabric is cut away in cutting floor at grey state. Only actual amount of fabric is dyed here. Therefore, less cost is found in garments dyeing.
7. In garments dyeing process desizing, scouring, bleaching, dyeing, finishing can be done in same machine. But in the case of fabric dyeing, these processes are not possible in the same machine.
8. The capital investment cost of garments dyeing is comparatively lower the fabric dyeing.
