High (performance) fiber

Abstract:
The new buzzwords in fashion these days are performance fabrics.

In the future, fabrics might be able to perform acupressure, dispense medication, give you a GPS reading and even smell better, according to textile engineers.

"We'll have three new products in December," said Nano-Tex Americas president Renee Hultin. "There will be anti-static [clothing] and our cotton dress shirts that are wrinkle-proof will be much improved. And we'll introduce workwear that repels ground-in stains. In six to nine months you'll start to see odor control and safety/hazard [components added]."
