What is Fault?

In the textile industry, a fault refers to any kind of defect or irregularity found in a fabric or garment. These can be caused by a variety of factors, including problems with the yarn or fiber used to make the fabric, issues with the weaving or knitting process, or mistakes made during finishing or dyeing.

Common types of faults in textiles include broken ends or picks, knots, slubs, holes, runs, stains, and color variations. These faults can impact the overall quality and appearance of the fabric or garment, and may even render it unusable.

To prevent faults in textile production, manufacturers often use quality control measures such as inspecting fabrics at various stages of the production process, testing yarns and fibers for strength and durability, and carefully monitoring the weaving or knitting process.

Additionally, advances in technology have allowed for the development of automated systems that can detect and repair faults in real-time, further improving the quality and consistency of textile products.
