Nanotechnology sweeps the textile industry

Abstract:
Booth Moore: There's big business in enhancing fabrics and fibers using nanotechnology. Nano-Tex, an Emeryville, Calif., company, is adding its labels to clothing by popular brands such as the Gap, Lands' End, Eddie Bauer and the high-end lines Yeohlee, Hugo Boss and Paul Stuart. Its fabrics offer four different properties: spill resistance, static resistance, body-heat absorption and stain release. By embedding microscopic fibers into traditional materials such as linen or cotton, Nano-Tex can provide added benefits.
