The Performance of Seams in a Real Wax Printed Cotton Fabric
The performance of seams contributes to the quality of apparel products.
It has been noted that the achievement of quality seams in garments and, for that, matter apparel products depends on several factors, which in turn, influence the properties of the seam.
The factors and the properties interact with the processes garments go through during use (example, laundry) to affect the overall performance of the seams in the garment.
Current published evidence in the area of Clothing and Textiles provide limited work that focuses on the performance of seams in sewn apparel products.
It is in line with this that this work has investigated the performance of seams in African prints by varying stitch density, sewing thread brands and washing cycles.
The outcome which is provided in this book should therefore help producers of garments and seamstress who use Ghanaian Real Wax cotton prints to know the appropriate thread type on the market to choose and stitch densities that would help achieve quality seams to meet consumers’ desires in terms of seams.
Secondly, there is limited documented research on the performance of seams in garments made from the Ghanaian Real Wax printed cotton fabrics
