Woven in 100 per cent New Zealand wool in Scandinavia, the blankets are made using twisted yarns that give them blankets a unique multicolour effect – which the brand likens to the effect of looking through a kaleidoscope.

"To weave the blankets we used two yarns with the same thickness but in the different colours," said ZigZagZurich. It explained that, "The yarns are twisted together and then woven. The beauty that comes out of this artistic choice is a kaleidoscopic game of colours and the creation, at the same time, of a pattern which cannot be controlled.”

Related Keywords: Accelerating Sustainability in Textile and Fashion, fibres, nylon, polyester, polymer, R-PET, r-Radyarn, r-Starlight, RadiciGroup Comfort Fibres, yarn

Bergamo
Summary: 
Filippo Servalli, Marketing and Sustainability Director of RadiciGroup said that, “GRS certification was yet another goal achieved by the Group – evidence of its customary transparency with the greatest clarity,” emphasising how measuring environmental impacts and continuously working to reduce them is always a top priority of the Group. He added that, “Indeed, these are the operative words guiding the RadiciGroup Comfort Fibres Business Area on a daily basis on its road to certifying its fibres obtained from recovered materials.” Later he said that, “Again, with the aim of saving natural resources, and water in particular, the Group offers solution-dyed polyester (and nylon) yarn. Solution dyeing requires less water and energy usage compared to conventional yarn or piece dying, because the colour is added ‘upstream’ during the extrusion stage and thus becomes incorporated into the polymer matrix.”

Farmers are free to grow the genetically engineered cotton plants, but they will require the green light

Related Keywords: cotton plant, gossypol in the seeds, modified cotton’s seeds, oil- and protein-rich seeds, strain of cotton, white fibers, white lint

USA
Summary: 
Texas A&M’s Keerti Rathore and colleagues inserted DNA into the cotton plant to turn off the gene responsible for producing gossypol in the seeds. The genetically engineered strain still has protective levels of gossypol in its shoots and leaves, but reduced amounts in its oil- and protein-rich seeds, which could potentially be eaten by humans, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) announcement. The team even roasted and ate a few of the seeds; they tasted like chickpeas, Rathore tells. Rathore adds that, “A lot of these countries [such as India] that do suffer from malnutrition are also cotton producers,” Also, “So I think that those countries may benefit much more from this technology.”

'Wise Eye' is a unique AI-based inspection system that satisfies the requirements of textile manufacturers

Related Keywords: fabric, Fashion of Institute of Textiles and Clothing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Textile and Apparel Artificial Intelligence, textile manufacturers, textile manufacturing, weaving process

Hong Kong
Summary: 
Textile manufacturers at present depend on human efforts to randomly examine the fabric by naked eyes. Due to human factors such as carelessness or physical exhaustion, defect detection by human labour is usually uncertain and unreliable. Textile manufacturers also made an effort to use some other fabric inspection systems, but those systems were not able to meet the industry needs. Safeguarding quality in the fabric production becomes a great challenge to the industry.
