Processing Faults


A barre defect in textile refers to a noticeable variation in color, texture or appearance across the width of fabric roll or batch. The defect occurs during the manufacturing process due to factors like difference in dye application, tension or other processing variables. As a result the fabric may exhibit visible stripes, streaks or bands that run parallel to selvedge.


It’s a loss of color when the dyed fabric is wetted or immersed in water. The water become colored and may lead to discoloration of other fabrics. This is usually due to either improper dye selection or poor dry fastness.


It is a printing error that occurs when different color layers of designs are not aligned properly during the printing process which results in producing a blur or offset image. It can result from the factors such as improper machine setup, inaccurate placement of fabric or inconsistencies I printing technique.


A scrimp defect occurs when the fabric creases underneath one of the screens during the printing process. The pattern is then printed on top of the crease, leaving a large unprinted area when the fabric returns to its relaxed state.
