Clothing is a project

Including design, production, the production process is divided into a variety of links, the most important link is the selection of materials, materials are divided into the fabric and other accessories. This other accessory we collectively called clothing accessories, is in addition to the fabric decorative clothing and expands the function of clothing essential components.

According to the different roles played by clothing accessories in the garment can be divided into:

Including design, production, the production process is divided into a variety of links, the most important link in the selection of materials, materials, and fabrics, and other accessories. This other accessory we collectively called clothing accessories, is in addition to the fabric decorative clothing and expands the function of clothing essential components.

According to the different roles played by clothing accessories in the garment can be divided into:

1, lining material (cotton fiber lining, silk fabric lining, viscose fiber lining, vinyl ester filament lining, synthetic fiber filament lining)

2, lining materials (cotton lining, linen lining, woolen mane lining, horsetail lining, resin lining, adhesive lining)

3, padding (chest pad, collar pad, shoulder pad, hip pad)

4, filler (wadding filler, material filler)

5, sewing thread (cotton sewing thread, silk sewing thread, polyester sewing thread, polyester-cotton blend sewing thread, embroidery thread, gold and silver thread, special sewing thread)

6, fastening materials (buttons, zippers, other fastening materials)

7, other materials (belt materials, decorative materials, labeling materials, packaging materials)

All these auxiliary materials, no matter with the inner quality of clothing, or external quality have an important impact. For example the lining, sewing thread mainly affects the internal quality of clothing, affecting the use of solidity, of course, also play a certain decorative role. And the lining material, lace, etc. is mainly used to decorate the garment. The composition of clothing, in addition to the fabric used for clothing on all materials, is called clothing accessories. The different roles played by accessories in the garment can be divided into lining materials, padding materials, fillers, sewing thread, fastening materials, decorative materials, logo materials, packaging materials, etc.

01 Garment Accessories Garment Lining

The washing lining material is smooth, easy to put on and take off, moderate thickness, rich color, easy to heat set, garment effect is better, but its wet strength is low, the shrinkage rate is large, easy to crease, not washable.

4、Acetate filament lining

Acetate filament lining, there is called Yasha, with its good comfort and diversity of varieties to become the common lining of middle and high-end clothing, its feel, luster, texture and silk lining similar, shrinkage is small, there are thin, medium, thick and plain, twill, satin, jacquard and other specifications, suitable for different types of texture fabrics.

5, synthetic fiber filament lining

Synthetic fiber filament lining nylon silk is the general clothing commonly used lining material, light texture, flat and smooth, firm and wear-resistant, no shrinkage, no fading, cheap. But the moisture absorption is small, static electricity is large. Wearing a stuffy feeling, not enough drape, but also easy to absorb dust. It can be used for jackets, windbreakers, ski jackets, and other low-grade clothing.

02 Garment Accessories Garment Lining

Interlining is used in some parts of the garment, lining, perfect garment shaping, or auxiliary garment processing materials, such as collar lining, chest lining, waist headlining, etc. A wide variety of clothing interlining, according to the use of parts, interlining materials, lining the type of backing, interlining and fabric combination can be divided into several categories. The main varieties are, cotton interlining, linen, woolen mane interlining, horsetail interlining, resin interlining, bonded interlining, etc.

1、Cotton lining

Common cotton interlining has two kinds of coarse cloth and fine cloth interlining, which are plain tissue, there are two kinds of original color and bleaching, belong to the low-grade interlining.

2、Linen lining

Hemp lining is a plain fabric made of hemp fiber, which has good stiffness and elasticity and is the lining for high-grade garments. Most of the linen lining on the market, in fact, is made of cotton rags dipped in the right amount of resin juice treatment, which is the mainlining of suits and coats.

3、Bristle lining

That is the wool lining, also known as black charcoal lining, mostly dark gray and miscellaneous colors. Generally for yak hair, wool, human hair blended or interwoven plain tissue fabric. The washed lining is stiff and elastic, modeling performance is good, mostly used as the lining of high-grade clothing, such as thick fabrics of the suit, the barge lining, chest Jane, etc.

Horsetail lining is a plain fabric made of horsetail and wool interwoven, the surface is horsetail brown and white interlaced, the density is sparse. Horsetail lining is very elastic, not wrinkled, brace, wet and hot state can be extracted out of the design of the required shape, long as the chest lining of high-grade clothing.

5、Resin lining

Resin lining is a lining made of cotton or polyester-cotton fabric processed by resin impregnation, mostly after bleaching. This lining has high stiffness, good elasticity, small shrinkage, washing resistance, stable size, is not easy to deformation, and is mostly used as collar lining of Zhongshan suit and shirt.

08 Clothing accessories process classification

1、Flat cloth label

Fabric labels such as cloth structure, simple a warp, and a weft up and down interwoven called a simple flat label. Generally speaking, the warp yarn is fixed, or black, or white, so there are black flat and white flat, light-colored background color labels, generally with white flat, dark-colored generally with a black flat. The pattern and color of the label are mainly expressed by the weft yarn, and the expressed color should be different for the effect of crossing with the warp yarn. Because of the limitation of the type of weft yarn used in general, the colors that can be expressed are also limited, generally within 8 kinds. From the above, the price is composed of: the width of the label, that is, the amount of warp yarn used; the length of the label, and the length of each color along the warp direction. In order to express the details and colors more richly, all the weft yarn are doubled, called double-sided label, if a sample color needs to be more three-dimensional, and then add a heavy yarn, called a heavy shuttle. Except for washing and sizing, most of the labels are flat and double-sided. Cloth label is the yarn to express the pattern, there must be differences with the original plane design, so no small sample to confirm the impossibility of making large goods.

2、Satin cloth label

Cloths, both warp, and weft are interwoven, and in addition to improving the quality by doubling the weft, there is the process of doubling the warp yarn, which is the satin structure. By doubling the warp yarn, the texture of the cloth label thus becomes soft and smooth. Because the warp yarn doubling is too dense, the weft yarn cannot express the pattern well and the bottom color cannot be made flexible. Only a certain color requirement can be revealed through the post-process. A machine set to do flat or satin is generally relatively more fixed. Cutting edge satin general width can not exceed, weaving edge of the general will not exceed.

09 Garment Accessories Types

I. Elastic band

It is what we often call an elephant root, and the width varies according to the need. Generally, there are two types of weaving: spindle weaving and woven weaving.

Weaving (shuttle weaving) is the interweaving of warp and weft. After twisting, the yarn is made into a tube (pan head) by the whole warp, and the weft is shaken into a twist to weave the tape on the loom. Because the width of the tape is small, the weaving method is different, ranging from single, double, dozens of strips, single layer, and double layer.

Weaving (spindle weaving) is the yarn through the winding tube, weft roll to form the weft tube, inserted in the fixed tooth seat of the weaving machine, weft tube along with the 8-way track rotary movement, in order to traction yarn cross each other weaving. Usually, the number of spindles is even, the woven tape is tubular, and the number of spindles is odd, the woven tape is a flat sheet.

The main raw materials are cotton yarn, viscose yarn, and rubber yarn. It can be used for underwear, clothing, gloves, etc.
