Prince Al Farabi a final year student of BGMEA University of Fashion and Technology has achieved Setting Transformation Black Belt through his 4 months’ intensive journey of 128 hours of factory skill development training in 8 different courses & 128 hours of practical project work at ISLAM GARMENT LTD regarding sustainability in Garments Washing & Dyeing.
Project Leader Engr. Md. Nasir Ullah, Country Manager Officina +39, Ex. Head of Washing Denimach Washing Ltd. handed over the certificate to Al Farabi at the Textile Today premises.
Md. Nasir Ullah said, “The outcome of the project was good and very effective to gain sustainability in Garment Washing and Dyeing sector in Bangladesh. Industries can easily apply the new updated process and sustainable products for mass production and can add more profits and value.”
Tazul Islam, General Manager (Wash), Islam Garments LTD. was the Industry Supervisor of this project.
On the other hand, Habib Manzur Hasan (Bappu) Director of KRB International has achieved Setting Transformation Black Belt in Fabric Technology through his 4 months’ intensive journey of 128 hours of factory skill development training in 8 different courses & 128 hours of practical project work at Southwest Composite ltd. regarding sustainable crease-free dyeing of cotton weft knit fabric.
Project leader Md. Rahat Ullah Rashed, Head Of Technical Support, Taiwan Persotex Corporation said, “The outcome of the project is very effective and efficient to deal with the crease mark problem in the dyeing of cotton weft knit fabric. The trial shows significant improvement to overcome this problem. Hope the result of this project will help other Dye houses of Bangladesh to minimize their problem regarding crease mark.”
This Project with which Prince Al Farabi worked in his 4 months’ journey was focused on turning the existing process and products into sustainable ones in Garments Washing and Dyeing. Saving water, energy and chemical is getting challenging in garment washing and dyeing for meeting the required production. In this project, he managed to apply sustainable products and processes in garment dyeing and washing. The outcome of the project shows the way to maximize production, reduce water, chemical and time and also add profit for the industry. This project has also the concern of Environment issues. The application of this project’s outcome will help the industries to add profit with ensuring sustainability.
Background or rationale:
The garment dyeing and washing section is heading to meet newer products and complex requirements in the present market. So the garments dyeing and washing methods are changing. If this stage we follow the same conventional dyeing and washing method, this sector will fall into some challenges. In conventional garment dyeing and washing method, the uses of water, chemicals and utilities are comparatively high than the newly introduced method of garments dyeing and washing. The SWEPT concept in garment washing and dyeing is one of the effective ones which is introduced in modern garments washing and dyeing processes.
Here, we can able to minimize the processes of garments dyeing. Nebulization dyeing technique is another evolutionary concept for garments dyeing. It is getting much popular for its ability of dyeing operation with a 1:1 liquor ratio. New markets are willing to have a more fancy and attractive outlook of garments. So the unique or vintage wash look of garments can’t be achieved with the regular washing technique alongside that it can cause high uses of utilities.
Recycrom dyeing is very effective to fulfil the required outlook of selective garments with fewer utility uses. These new methods and alternative chemical using is becoming a must choice to gain sustainability in garments washing and dyeing. It can able to reduce the use of water, chemicals and utilities and reduce the pressure of ETP and ultimate pollutant which hamper the Environment. From a business perspective, it can able to add profit for this sector.
This Project with which Habib Manzur Hasan Bappu worked in his 4 monthly’ journey was based on one of the most challenging problems found out in recent years where cotton weft knit fabric tends to form a crease mark. The fabric department faced this problem very often and found limitations in the end products and dealt with extra cost issues. The objective of this project was to find out the cause of Crease Mark, to analyze the relation between Fabric tightness and Crease mark and to see the shrinkage rate for increasing stitch length.
The current dyeing liquor ratio is 1:8 where needs extra chemicals, water and creates a crease mark, which is the cause of additional process and waste of time and sometimes fabric rejection for crease mark. So, this project is necessary for Crease free dyeing, which reduces extra processing time and reduces fabric rejection.
