The textile industry is changing from serving as a fabric supplier to being a positive power in social development. For instance, we are seeing the development of textiles that help clean water using sunlight as the sole source of power, there are clothes that take ECG readings, fabrics that cool down the body in extreme heat. Tomorrow’s textiles will improve both our everyday lives and society as a whole. At Smart Textiles, researchers, scientific institutions, businesses, the public sector and just about anyone with a smart idea can try out innovative ideas that benefit industry through the intelligent use of textiles. In an environment that freely unites input from a wide variety of backgrounds, tomorrow’s textile-based solutions are taking shape today.
