Fibres and Fabrics (2)
Creative + Scientific
Groups
man-made fibres
smart & technical
Finishes
mechanical & chemical
natural & man-made
"the future of textiles lies in the development of new fibres and fabrics."
exciting time for advanced textiles
Premiere Vision
Cellulose Fibres
Protein Fibres
Made for carbohydrate
Extracted from a variety of plants- to make fibres suitable for textile production
Soft – but not break up when washed
Protein is essential in the structure and function of all living cells.
Keratin comes from hair and is the most common protein fibre
Regenerated Fibres
natural chemical or regenerated
natural raw materials chemically engineered
derived from none cellulosic fibres – which means entirely chemical
synthetic filaments are produced by extrusion of the chemical through fine holes
Synthetic Fibres
Clarke & O'Mahony (2005)

imitating nature
now considered in their own right
