Chronicle sequence to evaluate the garment industry

Dresses are part and parcel of human life and dress making date had been started before thousands of years. Mechanized sewing machines lent the greatest impetus for easy dress making and large scale garment production eventually.

Let’s find the chronicle sequence to evaluate the garment industry step by step.

The Charka, most commonly known as the spinning wheel, was a wheel of prosperity for early spinners. For them, it represented a wheel of life as spinning the Charka to make spun yarn was their only means of earning a living. Charka is an ancient process to develop human clothing when they feel interest to cover them by fiber. Legend has it that this wheel had a spellbinding effect on the spinner leaving them engrossed with pondering, wondering and dreaming about life in a rhythm of the turning of the wheel - possibly another reason for it being named the 'wheel of life'. It is assumed that human civilization greatly progressed with the advent of wheel. It was true for human clothing too, as signified by the Charka.
