How it's produced

Ever wondered how garments and home textiles are produced?

In order to create a garment or home textile, many processes, in many parts of the world, are typically involved. Below we’ve outlined some of the major steps in the production chain. You’ll also learn where some of the challenges lie in terms of producing ecologically safe products, ensuring fair working conditions within factories and the use of environmentally friendly processing technologies.

Dry spinning, twisting, special yarn production, winding, assembling etc.

A mechanical process that requires no water or solvents to produce fibres and yarns (e.g. cotton).

Wet spinning

A fibre and yarn production process in the presence of water or solvents (e.g. viscose, modal, acetate, triacetate, acrylic, modacrylic).

Weaving, knitting, production of non-woven, felting, tufting, embroidering etc.

A textile fabric production process created by weaving, knitting or other fibre connection technologies.

Pretreatment, dyeing, printing, finishing, coating, washing etc.

Textile production processes using water and chemicals as process medium.

Manufacturing of accessories

Accessories production processes that are required for finished textile products like clothing and home textiles production (e.g. sewing threads, buttons, zippers, linings, fillings, tapes, labels, shoulder pads).

Making up of products

Textile production processes for articles created by cutting, sewing, fixing, ironing etc. (e.g. clothing, home textiles, technical textiles) and circular-knitted articles.

Textile logistics

A logistics centre for textile product distribution includes storage, re-packaging, assembling and delivery.

Others

E.g. non-agricultural fibre production

Manufacturing of foams and mattresses
