Quality Assurance is similar to quality control.  The fundamental principal is that manufacturers and suppliers wish to maintain control over the quality of their clothing, fabric, footwear, fashion accessories etc. 

In order to manufacturer high quality garments, companies involved in manufacturing need to maintain some sort of quality assurance or quality control plan and procedures.  The QA activities should include factory monitoring, testing, inspections, audits etc.

Below are only a few issues that are relevant to the quality assurance of clothing:

Fabric Defects 

Quality Control Managers 

Piece Goods Inspection 

Cutting Room Quality Control

In-Process Quality Control

Quality Management Systems

Tensile Strength Definition

Learn about fabric pilling.

Keep in mind that if your product is not produced with the highest quality standards, you risk fashion retail chargebacks.

If you do not fully understand quality assurance methods such as statistical analysis etc., you can consult inspection services or consultants to assist you.  It has become customary to use consultants and contractors when introducing new quality practices and methodologies as in some instances the relevant skill-set and experience might not be available within the organization.

We suggest that you also visit the Quality Testing and inspection services sections of the Apparel Search directory.

You may also wish to check out the Testing Lab and Testing Method sections to learn more on this subject.

If you have suggestion on how we can improve this section, please do not hesitate to let us know.  The purpose is to help educate the apparel industry.  If you have knowledge to share on this subject, please do so.

If you work as a QA in the textile or apparel industry, please join us for discussions regarding quality control at the fashion industry network (manufacturers group).
