And don't forget nanotechnology, which is also becoming a heavy contributor to new textile options. This approach is increasingly being used to change the behavior of fibers and fabrics by incorporating many new performance characteristics such as stain resistance, moisture wicking, antistatic and antimicrobial, among other properties. And all this is being accomplished without changing the hand or other intrinsic properties of the material.
The military market isn't being forgotten either. One of the latest innovations here: combat uniforms that offer flame resistance and thermal protection from sudden heat caused by improvised explosive devices.
And, last, but not least, there are the new electronic-age fabrics dubbed wearable electronics or wearable computers. Features here include panels of buttons that sync to an iPod. This approach is particularly applicable to sports coats and outerwear that are sturdy enough to hide the technology while at the same time allowing it to function.
