One of the hundreds of pallets of fabric
This is one of those lucky shots where I just happened to be taking a picture at the right time. She is smiling at all the students walking by.
This is the cutting station. Fabric is layered on top of itself many times and then all cut at once. The cutter is a pretty tool machine. You can see it on the left hand side of the picture.
Here is a close up of the fabric being cut. You can see how precise the cutter is. The guy running it wears a steel mesh glove on his left hand and pushes the cutter with his right.
There was an entire floor dedicated to seem checking. Each table is dedicated to a certain area of the garment.
This was one of the coolest parts to see. This machine sews the buttons on. The worker slides a button into the machine, lines up the shorts and then turns on the machine. It takes about one second for the machine to sew the button on. The needle moves around precisely through each hole.
