Apparel Training & Design Centre (ATDC), India’s largest vocational training network for the apparel sector, organised a workshop on ‘Fabric and Garment Testing’ at its Gurgaon campus recently. Amit Saluja, Senior Laboratory Manager, TUV Rheinland was the industry expert who conducted the workshop where more than 50 students attended. The aim of the workshop was to upgrade the knowledge base of students in fabric and garment testing. This would propel a swift growth in their career by providing them a hand on training in fiber analysis, physical properties, chemical properties, fabric strength, colour fastness, and to enrich the skill levels of Industry Personnel.
The significance of this test is to check the compliance of the regulatory requirements and safety standards of the concerned country, check whether the approved fabric used in production is appropriate or not. This would help in avoiding return and recalls, and most importantly ensure brand protection.
