New Technologies used in T-Shirt manufacturing.


Bio washing is an enzyme treatment to the fabrics, with Cellulose enzymes, for the purpose to cut the protruding fibers. The treatment applies to cotton as it is a cellulose-based fiber.

Bio wash fabric means, something that is previously washed, biologically to ensure that the clothes you buy do not shrink later as cotton fabric has a tendency to shrink post first wash.

It is a fabric finishing procedure that improves consistency by reducing the unevenness in stitched garments. 
This procedure gives softness to fabric and a seamless look.


Preshrunk refers to the treatment of neutralizing any residual shrinkage before offering the garment or fabric for use or sale of the textile products. 

Shrinkage can be improved with fiber selection and various processes (especially finishing techniques) controls. The simplest is cut panel laundry in which the sensitive fabrics are washed and dry before cutting them into the garments. And called ‘’Pre-shrunk’’. There are some chemical treatments such as resin application which can help in controlling shrinkage.
