Local soft-line experts perform detailed inspections of garments, home textiles, bulk fabric, yarn, footwear, wallets, bags and purses, leather and knitted goods. In addition to being highly knowledgeable about quality defects affecting textiles and garments, InTouch fabric inspectors are trained to look for discrepancies between material composition testing results and client specifications.
InTouch auditors have extensive experience inspecting both bulk textile goods as well as finished garments and footwear of all styles. During each soft-line inspection, InTouch will verify conformance to your specifications relating to patterns, materials used, stitches-per-inch, grams-per-square-meter, labeling and maintenance instructions, and of course, fitting measurements.
Bulk textile products are evaluated based on industry standards that assign “penalty points” values to each defect found within predetermined segments of the fabric.
As with all inspections, soft-line inspections provide an excellent opportunity for InTouch auditors to pull samples of all materials used in the assembly of a particular garment, textile or footwear product. Samples of colorants, decorative stones or sequins, and the base fabric itself can all be subjected to a battery of lab tests to ensure adherence to safety and industry standards at all times.
If you manage a brand, retail operation, or have clients that are relying on you to provide a quality product in every shipment, do not settle for inspection companies who use untrained and underpaid local inspectors.
InTouch QA teams are trained and our inspectors often have an engineering background. We’ll make sure you have the right team for the job and that your products are getting evaluated carefully and with high regard for product quality.
