The fashion industry is an ever-evolving landscape, where trends come and go, consumer preferences change…
Fashion is a vast segment and loads of people are involved in it. Fashion does not only means fashion designers and models. There are different sets of people and associated industries are involved in it to make it a success and one of the segments is of course Textile Design and Production.
Realistically, if you look at this segment of ‘Textile Design and Production’ then you can get an idea of how vast it is and how this particular segment is helping the entire fashion fraternity for one simple reason – Most fashions are made from textiles.
Because textile involves many things together including different materials, technology, and end product. Textile can offer partial to full automation of the spinning and weaving of wool, cotton, and other natural fibers as well as different texture and thickness of the product. All these mean that fashion designers and brands have a lot to choose from to create their fashion line and fashionwear.
Since the time of industrial Revolution in the 18th century to 21st century those processes which are highly automated and carried out by computer-controlled high-speed machinery, textile industry has travelled a lot of path. Moreover, a large sector of the textile industry produces fabrics for use in apparel.
Different materials have different effects on clothes and designs including shine, strength, softness and cost-effectiveness.
Let’s look at the types of materials we can have in textile-
Natural fibers – wool, cotton, silk, and linen
Synthetic fibers- nylon, acrylic, and polyester
Sustainable fashion eco-friendly fibers- hemp.
Then there are high-tech synthetic fabrics with moisture-wicking properties, stain resistance (e.g., 303 High Tech Fabric Guard), retention or dissipation of body heat, and protection against fire, weapons, cold (e.g., Thinsulate), ultraviolet radiation, and other hazards.
Fabusse, over the years, helped many fashion designers and brands with special types of raw materials and fabrics. We have many resources from where we can procure high-quality raw materials from India, South Korea, and China.
Textile production is also a long process involving different stages of activities such as dyeing, weaving, printing, and other manufacturing and finishing processes to produce top-quality fabrics.
Textile manufacturers are one of the pillars of the fashion domain and together with fashion forecasters, they work well in advance of the apparel production cycle to create fabrics with colours, textures, and other qualities that anticipate consumer demand.
