The Conference Board of Canada defines innovation as a "process through which economic or social value is extracted from knowledge through the generation, development and implementation of ideas to produce new or improved products, processes and services." The Department of Trade and Industry, UK defines it as "the successful exploitation of new ideas". As far as India is concern, only small investment (0.9% of GDP) on R&D as compared to USA (2.7% of GDP) and China (2.08% of GDP). An illustration of the importance of new product development can be seen in the area of the TECHNICAL TEXTILES. Country's technical textiles market which is currently estimated at $14 billion is likely to reach a level of $32 billion by 2023( 20% growth per annum). However, this book is divided into four chapters. The first one deals with product development, second for design logic of textile products, third for simulation of specific properties or structures leading to design, fourth is for case studies related to product development. More than 20 case studies are are illustrated with reference in technical textiles to explore the possibilities of product development in technical textiles.
Medical Textile is one of the most rapidly expanding sectors in the technical textile market. Medical Textiles are the products and constructions used for medical and biological applications and are used primarily for first aid, clinical and hygienic purposes. It consists of all those textile materials used in health and hygienic applications in both consumer and medical markets. Skin disease is due to allergy, variation in climate, wrong usage of chemicals, tablets, injection, this will create problem to human body. Most of the skin allergies are caused due to over secretion of histamine by mast cell. Normally mast cells are made by bone marrow. They are part of immune system. These cells are more in skin, lungs and intestine. Due to variation in atmospheric condition, histamine is secreted by mast cell that will cause blister in skin, lungs and intestine. In order to suppress this histamine, antihistamine medicines were used. In this book, a discussion was made on the application of the fabric treated with two different herbals which have antihistamine property to release antihistamine to prevent some skin diseases.
Colloquium on„Integrated Best Available Wastewater Management in the Textile Sector“September 19, 2018at Max-Planck-Institut für Festkörperforschung Lecture Hall 2D5, Heisenbergstraße 1, 70569 Stuttgart-BüsnauScientific Head: Dr.-Ing. Harald Schönberger University of Stuttgart Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management (ISWA)Apart from cotton cultivation and the production of dyestuffs and optical brighteners, textile finishing – also called textile wet processing – is one of the environmental hotspots. The dominating emission mass stream from textile finishing is wastewater as practically all inorganic and most of the organic (more than 90 %) chemical compounds are discharged with wastewater. Emissions to air, although not negligible, and with solid wastes are of significant lower relevance. In addition, in many parts of the globe, water availability and water scarcity respectively are of increasing concern triggering the need to avoid, reduce or recycle textile wastewater.Against this background the colloquium will contribute to the development of integrated best available wastewater management practices in the textile sector. This comprises the minimisation of water, energy and chemicals consumption by process optimisation (process- and production-integrated measures) and the careful selection of chemicals products. The latter means that the chemical products should be free of substances which are non-biodegradable or which are toxic or do have a negative impact on aquatic life.As textile wastewater pollution cannot be fully prevented at source, the colloquium also focusses on its advanced and effective treatment with special consideration of its recycling in case of limited water availability or scarcity.The programme covers the aforementioned aspects. Well-known speakers will present latest technologies and technical concepts to the audience from textile finishing industries, retailers and brands, techniques providers, textile associations and authorities from national, regional and local level, GIZ and representatives of the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles.The colloquium is being organised by the “Forschungs- und Entwicklungsinstitut für Industrie- und Siedlungswasserwirtschaft sowie Abfallwirtschaft e.V. (FEI)” in cooperation with the Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management (ISWA) of the University of Stuttgart and the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles.
Geo textiles have evolved as an integral part of the Technical Textile Industry. It adds value addition and has a great export potential. It has been used since ages, dating back to era of Egyptian pharaohs as a support material in mud made huts to the modern roadways, civil and military constructions. Today we see a lot of varieties of Geo textiles product for different applications with only one thing in common that is its worldwide demand is increasing. Our aim is to bring about awareness among the industry, further more to make a marketing and feasibility report for Geo textile products that should be produced in Pakistan. In-order to increase textile export portfolio of Pakistan Textile industry. Additionally enhancing the exposure of the Pakistani manufacturers to explore the vast value added market of such products.
'Devoted entirely to textiles for interiors, Textiles for Residential and Commercial Interiors, 4th Edition, focuses on the most current fiber and fabric information including new fiber technology and nanofibers, the role of the interior designer in selecting textiles, and the environmental impact of textiles. The book includes in-depth coverage of household and institutional textiles, in addition to commercial and residential textiles for upholstered furniture, windows, walls, and floor coverings. Full-color line drawings and photographs illustrate fibers, yarns, fabrics, manufacturing equipment, coloring, finishings, and end products. Textiles for Residential and Commercial Interiors provides students with all of the technical information, aesthetic fundamentals, and practical knowledge they need to select textiles for every type of residential and commercial interior'--

The book presents the latest developments in narrow fabrics and smart materials from research institutions, machinery building companies and producers of such products, presented during the International Week of Narrow and Smart Textiles in Spring 2018 in Mönchengladbach, Germany. It also demonstrates different applications of braided and woven fabrics. Braided and woven narrow products are produced using completely different techniques, but have a lot of similarities in their applications &#8211; they are used as belts, ropes and tubes in areas ranging from medical textiles, cables, technical and home applications to large-scale transport belts and long tubes for transporting oil from the bottom of the ocean.
Engineering textiles: Integrating the design and manufacture of textile products looks at design concepts from traditional to technical textiles and discuss engineering approaches to the process of manufacturing these products.
Now in its 13th year, this unique showcase is an authoritative guide to contemporary design. Covering the five major areas of domestic design, International Design Yearbook 13 features furniture, lighting, tableware, textiles, and other products created over the past year and a half by both well-known designers and new names from around the world. This year's selection has been made by internationally acclaimed designer Richard Sapper. Michael Horsham's text explores the material culture of design in the 1990s; the methodology of design; and the tension between the hand, the eye, and the machine in terms of modern form. The objects are lavishly illustrated, and full technical data given for each. A comprehensive reference section provides biographies of the designers, a list of suppliers and their addresses, and an updated list of design acquisitions at major international museums.
