Whether consumer or retailer receives your textile product, you need to make sure that they are as they should be. Our textile inspections are customized by combining our standard garments inspection checklists with your unique product specifications. We verify the quality of mass production based on your Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL), identifying and classifying defects to offer an overview of your product’s quality.
We also perform on-site tests and assess compliance with your product’s specification and approval sample. Checks include sizing, measurements, labeling, packaging, and packing. Such as;
COLOR: Do the colors match the colors requested in the order? Do they match the sample? Is the color consistent in all products; i.e. there is no shading?
MATERIALS: Is the quality of the materials identical to the sample? Is the quality consistent across all pieces?
ODORS: Does your garment smell of textile ink, mold, or cigarette smoke?
SIZE AND DIMENSIONS: Are the products the same size as the original sample or order request? Are the dimensions accurately duplicated in production?
WEIGHT: Is the weight of the finished product the same as the original sample?
FINISHES: Have the requested finishes been added, such as linings, closures, hooks, etc.? Are they exactly like the sample?
NOTIONS: Are the buttons, zippers, snaps, etc secure and strong?
CONSTRUCTION: Are the products durable? Do the seams pull? Is the metal pliable?
STITCHING: Is the stitching strong and the same as the sample?
PACKING: Is the quality of the label, tags, and polybag as you requested?
Make sure to double-check any rush orders you have placed to confirm that the rush didn’t compromise the Quality.
