Company launched the brand "Amoda". Focussing strongly on quality control and technical expertise, the company continued to increase turnover year on year.
Rahul Agrwal, joined the company with a view to expanding the customer base. He worked to develop high volume linen consumers in south India. Company then made its first warehouse at Erode( Taminladu ) with a high end quality development process . The company out-grew its with a new office and moved to a new location with larger offices and warehousing in Bangalore, Karnatka. Rahul continued to develop the business, building a team to take on Sales, Purchasing, Warehousing and Technical Development / QC as the company saw a steady growth.
Having started to develop the linen side of the business, it became apparent that this was where the market was.
Cotton has to be harvested as soon as it is fully ripened, if left too long weather conditions will adversely affect the quality and yield of the crop. The harvest can be done by hand or machine and the picked seed cotton is then baled ready for Ginning.
This is the process of separating the lint from the seed. The cotton first goes through dryers and then cleaning equipment to remove foreign matter. It is then pulled through closely spaced ribs that remove the seeds before being baled. Each bale will then be inspected and graded ready for delivery to the mill.
At the mill the lint is cleaned further before going on to be carded, a process which separates and aligns the fibres into a thin web. The higher quality fibres can then go on to be combed giving a smoother, finer yarn.The carded or combed yarn is then drawn through a funnel-shaped device, providing a soft rope-like strand. Up to eight of these strands can be gradually drawn and twisted together to create spun yarn.
The modern weaving machine typically produces around 200m of fabric a day. On the loom, strengthened (sized) lengthwise yarns (warp) form the skeleton of the fabric, these are interlaced with a filling yarn (weft). The main weaves for our sector are Plain Weave, in which the weft yarn is passed alternately over one warp yarn and under the next, and Satin Weave where there are fewer interlacings allowing the yarns from one direction to dominate the ‘face’ of the cloth.
5. BLEACHING AND PROCESSING
The woven cloth must first be de-sized to remove the products used to strengthen the warp yarns, it can then be carefully bleached white before being stretched, straightened and heat set into finished fabric. Other processes can include Sanforising (a process of mechanically pre-shrinking the fabric) and mercerising (a process of swelling and aligning the fibres to give more lustre to the cloth)
After final quality inspection, the fabric is ready to be turned into product. Each product has a detailed specification showing dimensions, stitching details, such as coloured ID hems, and embellishments of embroidered logos etc. Finished products are packed in cartons ready for shipment.
All goods arriving in our warehouse are subjected to quality inspection. Representative samples are inspected for colour, dimensions, stitching/hemming and fabric quality. In-house tests can be performed to assess the starch levels, tensile/tear strength, bias/bow, thread count and gsm.
Our Warehouse has a capacity of over 750 pallets and holds over 300 product lines. Our logistics can handle deliveries worldwide from one small carton to full container loads. Each order, large or small, is packed and delivered to our customers with care and precision.
