What is "Garment dye" - Definition & Explanation

The process of dyeing finished garments. Benefits are that colour decisions can be left until the last minute (reducing manufacture of unwanted merchandise) and you only dye the fabric in the garment (cut and sew also dyes the 10 - 20% of the fabric that ends up as waste). Garment processing usualy uses a bit more water than fabric processing.
