Fabric Grade (How It Is Measured)

Our Napkin Grading Process

With all of our fabric suppliers and finishers, we say to them this; Angel Paper Table Linen, have a very specific and unique way to value the linen fabric once it has arrived as a finished product and is subsequently awarded an end user grade that is relevant to its performance and features. Our rigorous grading process, covers a number of factors such as: quality of material, fabric workmanship, pattern style, measurement exactness, type of fabric, weight of fabric, sensitivity of touch, laundry temprature qualities, durability, versatility, practicality, fold on arrival, i.e. is it in a perfect square alignment and above all THE FINISH!!

The grading table below will advise the number the napkin is given and where it will be situated on the website: 

 EXCEPTIONAL PASS ON ALL CAREFULLY SCRUTINISED FACTORS 
 FAIL ON ONE OR A NUMBER OF RELATED FACTORS (UNACCEPTABLE FOR HIGH END STANDARD) 

 

GRADE MARK LEVEL WEBSITE POSITIONING PACKAGING & FINISH COMMENT
1 High End Range Obviates the requirement of subsequent comment.
2 High End Range Slight Imperfections Be very careful as expected standards have very slightly slipped. An additional error in the finished article would exclude participation from within the High End Section and the product would become a level 3 within the Standard Range Section.
3 Standard Range Not too bad of a quality but product does not entirely meet the grade for high end placement. Product requires a little more attention to detail before signing off and dispatch. Perfection in square fold alignment is usually missing on this grade with a few untidy stitch finishings. Sometimes the pattern design features may not be what we are looking for to be placed within the High End range.
4 Standard Range Grade 4 end product is mainly associated with loose fibres that protrude from the fabric and slightly uncareful stiching or, an untidy stiching finish, i.e. loose strands of stiching that are apparent and have not been cut away.
5 Standard Range  It would have to be an exceptional grade level 5 to even be contemplated for website exposure and even then it may not make the grade. Grade level 5 products are usually a cheap quality material and do not possess a soft feel, other factors are also things such as plain overlock stitching.

 

Anything that is below a level 5, we simply do not allow on the website nor would we contemplate on passing it on to our valued customers. 

 

DISCLAIMER

Many of our fabric suppliers and finishers expect that their product should be placed within the high end section of the website; please be informed that we do not discriminate against any organisation if their product does not make the grade for whatever reason; we speak only the truth on behalf of our customers and as a consequence, we are able to control what product goes where for the betterment and transparency for all concerned parties.
