Below are listed the ten of the most amazing textiles of the future:

1. Apparels which will be able to self-clean!

Yes, you read that right! Dr. Rajesh from an Australian university namely Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology led the research which made significant discoveries’ about the structure of different elements of cotton, which can clean themselves. Although, it is still work in progress, the scientists are hopeful for it to become a realty soon.

Self-cleaning clothes might be a thing in the near future. People who do their laundry know the hassle they have to go through. Gathering the clothes, putting them in the machine, and getting them through a dryer; all with the super wet surf and lather. This hassle is all but about to end in the future.

2. Vibrating sportswear

There are many instances of sports where precision and accuracy is required to get going. Take for example the throwing of a cricket ball at a specific angle set by the cricketing lawmakers. The angle is fifteen degrees of elbow joint which can be straightened while bowling. To make young cricket bowlers make sure they practice this legal angle; Cricflex is a startup producing arm wear which vibrates if your bowling action falls short of the legal fifteen degrees.

Likewise, fitness clothing which include gymnastics, aerobics, and other such sports which require precise angles are jumping on vibrating sportswear bandwagon.

3. Clothes with recycled ocean plastic

Plastic waste is a big concern for ocean life. Plastic waste is being used to create sportswear and in the near future shall be recycled to make routine apparels which can be worn like normal clothes.  Adidas made football jerseys for a few football clubs like Man United which were made of ocean plastic which turn into textile goods.

The banana fiber is epitome of strength and durability. The stem of the banana tree is sued to make this fiber and is extremely durable as well as environment friendly. The cost associated with these fibers is therefore very less, which in turn produces cost effective clothing. Therefore, the needy people can benefit from this type of fiber clothing in textile industry.

9. Massager garb

Visiting a massager after a tiring day of work or sport might not be the last thing on your mind. To counter this a full-fledged garb is there to massage you while you lay down for a quick rest. The combination of censors and corresponding vibrations make massage movements on key areas of the body, and the result is a complete home massage.

Leather products are expensive and brutal as they are procured after some animal is killed for the hides. An increasing number of customers want to play no role in this brutal killing spree of animals. Organizations like PETA which work for animal protection have raised their voices too. Therefore, the fruit waste like apple left from juice production is being used as a fiber for clothes.

How do they gets order from buyers?

Garments factory produced garments and shipment to various country by on land transportation, Sea or by air and makes profit. They use LC transaction system most of the time get the money.  When the manufacturer failed to complete the full PO quantity order on time than they send the goods to buyer by air which is much expensive than sea shipment.

Have you ever been curious to know? How exactly they execute all of those process? No…………o! If yes; than you might be get some information but not completely satisfied you. Isn’t it? Today I’ll try to make you a little clearer about this matter. Let’s ask a few question and try to find out the answer.

How do they gets order from buyers?



Get an order to produce garments is not an easy task. Merchandiser of a factory is responsible to take order from buyer and execute the full production to shipment. The merchandiser received some product related documents like Tech Pack, Spec, and Measurement Chart from buyer’s representative. Merchandiser send those documents to Product Development (PD) Department it’s also known as Sample Section. The pattern maker makes pattern and send it to the sample making responsible to make mock up for that particular garment. Also send the pattern to CAD department to calculate the actual consumption of fabric and materials.

What is Mock Up?

Mock up is a demo structure of that garments, makes the initiating time of product development stage. PD makes to find out the difficulties it’s can be occurred during sample making and production process. Mock up helps the CAD & IE related people to find out the actual consumption materials and SMV. This sample makes from available fabric and trims which already they have in factory.

Procedure of to go for Negotiations:
Base on this value they makes approximate price for garments, which they get from CAD & and IE. The merchandiser place a price to the customer to negotiate with them. Most of the time buyer ask to reduce the price if the garments is new style. When the buyer thinks the price is reasonable they ask them to proceed for buying sample. The sample section is responsible to make desire garments however customer needs.  Representative of buyer change the garments style, shape, materials so many time in this development stage to make a proper shape and affordable price. If they like than they ask for Counter Sample (CS) to make contract seal with that factory.

What is contract Seal?


Contract seal means, the factory get the order from buyer and can be start production process as soon as they want to complete the production within shipment dead line. Factory works so hard to complete the production and prepared the shipment goods in the barrier of their

last FOB date.

How they negotiate the price of goods?

Merchandiser is the person who is responsible to do that negotiation with customer. Merchandiser go for negotiation after get the consumption summary from CAD department, SMV & threads consumption from IE Department. This process takes a little long time finalize the actual garments and is price. Its takes 60 days to 120 days depend on buyer requirement and goods price from development to shipment.

What-is-garment-Tech-Pack-or-Spec

Tech pack is an important sheet or paper where the designer create tech pack by illustration with all necessary information to make the desire product. It’s also known as spec by relevant people.This is like a contract paper for buyer and manufacturer, where they put all necessary information how they want that garments and send it to the responsible merchandiser. The buyer place all those information how they want that garments. Buyer send tech pack or spec separately for each and every garments.  Now in single sentence we can say that is tech pack is an instruction paper for making garment.

What is include in tech pack?

Tech pack is all about design, garment measurement and direction; how the garment need to produce.

  • Technical sketch of garments (Back, Front, Sleeve, neck, Hemp, and all required projection).
  • Garment’s proper image with measurement point.
  • Fabric Construction details (fabric type, fiber type, fiber percentage).
  • List of fabric, trims, materials, color, grading (Material source or supplier if required).
  • Size chart and ratio breakdown.
  • Artwork for prints, embroideries, patterns, labels, etc.
  • Packaging instruction.
  • Label dimension, fabrication, placement, text size and description.

How tech pack reduce time consumption in production industry?

Before place a production order to a garments manufacturer by buyer need a pre-production sample (PP Sample) as they can acquaint the production ability of any factory. Without any tech pack or special instruction none of any company can makes sample perfectly. They’ll have to make more and more PP sample and submit to the buyer for approval. It’ll take so much time to make exact sample which buyer looking for. In that case too much time required to approve one sample by buyer, time in money in production industry. If Sample department follow buyers tech pack or spec than may be they’ll be able to make desire sample on time and reduce the consumption of time which is way to save money.

How do you make a tech pack?

Most of the time designer used Adobe Illustrator software to make design or dedicated garments design software. Some time they follow some design template which can be downloaded from internet. If you want to make this kind of design you may follow any kind of methods to do your own design. Personally I use Adobe illustrator software which used most of the designing or advertisement media. Illustrator makes vector file so you would be able to print your design large size if you want.

Problem of Tech Pack

When any designer create a particular garments design; Designer doesn’t have much idea about pattern & marker making. In that case sometime designer need to amend the design by discussing with technical team as per save consumption of fabric.
