Jediiians visit Strawberry Studio Exports in Delhi
JD Institute constantly strives for holistic education by giving the opportunity to its students to experience what they study in the classrooms. One such endeavour was the visit to an export-oriented manufacturing unit and a printing factory.
Strawberry Studio Exports Pvt Ltd is one of the top garment exporters in Delhi, specialising in kid’s garments. With a customer base in Europe, they have stringent quality control systems in place, that are required for export of kidswear. It is one of the few factories that make knits as well as woven garments.
The visit began by first exploring their showroom which was a riot of beautiful pastels. Jediiians looked at the plethora of designs on display where each garment had exquisite details and construction. It was enchanting to see the design elements that have to be incorporated even in an infant’s garment for making it aesthetically beautiful, yet comfortable, functional and safe.
Jediiians visited all the different departments of the factory, starting with sampling to the fabric store, trim store, pattern making, cutting, sewing, finishing and packing departments. The Quality Assurance Manager explained in detail, each operation and its importance. At the same time, he also briefed the students on the importance of safety guidelines like button pull test, metal detection, chemical guidelines, effluent treatment and many other parameters.
The visit to the export house was followed by a visit to a printing unit. Students witnessed the process of making and exposing screens, table printing, Octopus screen printing. They also saw foil printing, heat sealing of studs and sublimation printing on polyester panels.
It was an extremely productive visit which helped them bridge the gap between theoretical study and practical working scenario in manufacturing units.
