The semi-dry sarees are steam ironed (heat through steam ) on a massive machine, the Clip Stentering. The entire length of the saree runs on the bed and is ironed as it moves along the horizontal axis. The saree is collected in a roll at one end and moves onto the cutting section.
Manual cutting of the saaree is done according to the pre-decided length from the roll. The sarees are also tagged at this stage where a unique identification number is given to every saree. KSIC is the only organization to give guarantee for its zari saree in the form of embroidered code No. which is unique to each saree.
The sarees are sent from the cutting section to check the final finishing. Stains are removed manually by using white petroleum. The threads are trimmed at the ends and are sent for packaging.
The sarees are packed in waterproof paper or brown paper depending on the climatic conditions. They are then sorted according to type and placed in cartons with cotton and sent to showrooms.
