Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the influence of embroidering technological parameters, of knitted material structure and of either using or not nonwoven material for backing on the quality of restangular embroidered element; based on the obtained results to select the optimal technological parameters for the embroidering of original clothing element avoiding the higher time expenses for the technical development process of new product.

Design/methodology/approach

The new methodology for the optimization of technology of original embroidered clothing element is based on the measurements of simple geometric element.

Findings

The methodology of technology optimisation based on the measurement of restangular element geometric parameters can also be applied for the optimization of the embroidering technology of advanced design elements.

Research limitations/implications

The present study was carried out investigating knitted materials, but its methodology may be used for woven fabrics also, as their elongation rate is lower than one of knitted materials.

Originality/value

Development of the embroidering technology of original clothing element is based on the scientific approach and industrial experience.
