Handloom Products With Places Of Production | Handloom Products For Local And International Business

Handloom products are popular in local and international market. In Bangladesh, handloom products are produced in some specific district. Each products has its own characteristics. This products are marketed by the weavers or the buyer buyers from the weavers. Bangladesh handloom board (BHB) helps the handloom weavers in the marketing of their products in local and international market.

The buyer can get their desired products from the specific place of production or from the market. In this article, I mentioned the products name list with the place of production. Now one can get the products very easily from the handloom weavers. This will be helpful for local and international trade. BHB also helps to marketing the products by their marketing promotion team.

Here is the list of product list and their place of production. They are:

Serial No. Handloom Products Name Place of Production

2 Benarasi Mirpur of Dhaka and Iswardi of Pabna.
3 Tangail Sharee(Cotton sharee, Half Silk, Soft Silk, Cotton Jamdani, Gas-mercerised Twisted Cotton Sharee, Dangoo Sharee, Balucherri) Tangail Sadar, Delduar and Kalihati, Nagorpur, Basail of Tangail District.
4 Handloom Cotton Sharee Shahjadpur, Belkuchi and Sadar of Serajgonj, Narsingdi and Pabna District.
5 Lungi Ruhitpur of Keranigonj and Dohar of Dhaka District, Shajadpur, Ullapara, Belkuchi, Sadar of Serajgonj District, Kumarkhali of Kushtia District, Sathia, Sadar and Bera of Pabna District.
6 Silk Sharee Sadar and Shibgonj of Chapai Nawabgonj and Rajshahi District.

So, contract with the local handloom products producer for collecting your desired products.

Types Of Fabric Weight Measurement System And Their Area Of Application

There are various types of fabric is available in the market, they are woven, knitted or non-woven fabric. Fabrics are differing from one to another depending on the manufacturing techniques. Fabrics are differing depending on the fabric design. Some fabrics are heavy and some are light in weight. So, it is important to determine the fabric weight.

Types of Fabric Weight Measurement System and Their Application: Fabric weight can be measured by the following three ways. They are as follow:

By using formula: Fabric weight can be measured by the formula. Where fabric length, weight and width is known. In this measuring system it is not required to cut the fabric. But it needs to measure the whole fabric. Two formula is given below:

Oz/yd2 = 576 M/ (LW)

Oz/yd = 16 M/L


M= Mass of the fabric roll in Ibs

L= Length in yards

W= Width in inch

By GSM cutter: GSM means Grams per Square Meter. It is most used methods for measuring fabric weight. In these methods, GSM cutter, cutting pad and electric balance is used. It is a quick and authentic method. For measure this above instruments and small amount of fabric sample is required.

By using fabric consumption: Another process is done by using fabric consumption. By these methods, fabric weight can be measurement without any measurement and instruments. Here, fabric consumption is used for calculating the fabric weight directly. The main problem is that, warp and weft crimps are required which varies widely and only an approximate value is used which may not provide exact GSM of the ultimate fabric.

Among the above three methods, GSM cutter system is more comfortable and accurate methods for measure the fabric weight. These methods are used for test the fabric weight in various types of quality testing lab.

Fabric weight measurement is required in weaving, knitting, dyeing and finishing unit of a textile mill. It is an off line quality assurance system.

Density Testing Procedure Of A Textile Fiber

In textile industry; quality control department is responsible to carried out various types of quality test. Density test is one of them. Density test is important for fabric manufacturing.

Density of a textile fiber is important to know. Density is measured by the following steps. Density gradient is prepared as the following:

  • Clamp the density gradient glass in a firm vertical stand.
  • Pour into the tube 25 ml of tetrachloroetylene.
  • Now prepare mixture of xylene and tetrachloroetylene in descending order of percent tetrachloroetylene: 90/10, 80/20, 70/30, 60/40, 50/50, 40/60, 30/70, 20/80 and 10/90.
  • Pour 25 ml of each in order carefully down the side of the gradient tube.
  • Finally put 25 ml of xylene on top.
  • Take short fragments of dyed reference fibers and tie in a knot snipping off loose ends.
  • Boil for 2 minutes in xylene solvent to remove moisture and air.
  • After about a half hour they should come to the rest in a level representing their density.
  • Calibrate glass sphere may be used to determine the actual density at various levels.
  • Prepare the unknown fiber in like manner, place in the gradient column and note at what level it floats.

So, that’s all about the density test. We can test the various types of fibers density as the above procedure.
