The heart of sustainable fashion
Summary: 
More than ever, people are looking for more sustainable ways to lead their lives. From the food they eat, to the transport they choose and even to the clothes they wear. Forward thinking retailers and designers such as IKEA and Marimekko have responded by experimenting with more sustainable, alternative materials, but overall our fast-fashion lifestyles and reliance on fossil materials keep us hooked on unsustainable

More than ever, people are looking for more sustainable ways to lead their lives. From the food they eat, to the transport they choose and even to the clothes they wear. Forward thinking retailers and designers such as IKEA and Marimekko have responded by experimenting with more sustainable, alternative materials, but overall our fast-fashion lifestyles and reliance on fossil materials keep us hooked on unsustainable textiles.

So where should we be looking for wardrobes that are green in every color? And what are the problems with our current array of common materials?

HOFZET next plans to make various modifications to the advanced weaving system

Related Keywords: bio-hybrid fibre, fibre-reinforced composites, flax-based multi-layer fabrics, hybrid textiles, polyamide, special spacer fabrics, Textile-reinforced concrete, thermoplastic matrix fibres, viscose, weaving loom

Kortrijk
Summary: 
At present, a key HOFZET research focus is on composite reinforcements with a thermoplastic matrix – or organosheets – which offer reversible deformation and recycling potential in comparison with thermoset composite materials. The weaving loom enables the integration of thermoplastic matrix fibres into hybrid textiles as perfect thermoplastic prepregs. These prepregs can be shaped to a required form and turned into composites using hot pressing technology. This approach enables a reduction of process steps, cycle times and production waste, the company reports. Furthermore, the process is said to allow new design freedom, which enlarges the component spectrum of fibre-reinforced composites.

Conductive yarns and coatings are essential for a broad variety of smart textile applications, such as sensors, data transmission lines, or heated fabrics

Related Keywords: conductive textile coatings, conductive textile elements, cotton, data transmission lines, graphite–polyurethane coatings, heated fabrics, linen, polyester woven fabrics, sensors, smart textile applications, Textile, textile substrates, viscose, washing resistance

Germany
Summary: 
Strong influence of textile substrates - The washing resistance of different graphite–polyurethane coatings with graphite contents between 25% and 33% on cotton, linen, viscose, and polyester woven fabrics was compared, using two different graphite particle sizes on diverse textile substrates, in a recent study. It was found that not only the graphite particle dimensions and graphite concentration strongly influence the longevity of the coatings, but also the textile substrates which were coated with the conductive mass. This means that conductive coatings cannot be optimised without knowledge of the planned application.
