The impact of the fast fashion phenomenon is seen both in apparel and textile manufactures since the manufacturing time of apparels is considered as the most potential factor in reducing the overall time of the fashion cycle. In addition to the need for reduction in lead time, there is an increase in levels of quality expectations, resulting in higher cost of manufacture. Hence, in the present scenario, for high fashion garments, there is a need for technology which can minimize lead time and fabric losses, in addition to the production of garments as per the requirement of the customers in a short span of time. A DPOL (Direct Pattern on Loom) method for weaving fabric in the shape of garment panels (pieces) finished at the edges that could considerably reduce fabric loss and lead time is developed by using the electronic jacquard weaving machine. The main aim of the project is to study the feasibility of the production of Direct pattern on Loom especially on jacquard and to check the lead time required with conventional and this modern method.
