Sustainable Technologies for Fashion and Textiles combines the latest academic research and industrial practices to shed light on a wide range of activities that influence how the textiles industry affects the natural environment. Pressure from regulators, customers and other stakeholders has pressed companies to translate general sustainability concepts and ideas into business practices. This is leading to improvements in how the industry consumes water, electricity and chemicals, and to a reduction in the amount of waste generated by textile processes. This book groups approaches to these topics under four themes, fiber, yarn and fabric production, chemical processing, garment manufacturing and recycling. Addresses sustainability challenges that occur throughout the supply chain, from the sourcing of raw materials, to recycling finished products Provides introductions to sustainability—both in general and within the textiles industry—making this topic accessible for readers of all backgrounds Compares the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches to sustainability, helping readers avoid pitfalls when devising their own strategies

The integration of electronics into textiles and clothing has opened up an array of functions beyond those of conventional textiles. These novel materials are beginning to find applications in commercial products, in fields such as communication, healthcare, protection and wearable technology. Electronic Textiles: Smart Fabrics and Wearable Technology opens with an initiation to the area from the editor, Tilak Dias. Part One introduces conductive fibres, carbon nano-tubes and polymer yarns. Part Two discusses techniques for integrating textiles and electronics, including the design of textile-based sensors and actuators, and energy harvesting methods. Finally, Part Three covers a range of electronic textile applications, from wearable electronics to technical textiles featuring expert chapters on embroidered antennas for communication systems and wearable sensors for athletes. Comprehensive overview of conductive fibres, yarns and fabrics for electronic textiles Expert analysis of textile-based sensors design, integration of micro-electronics with yarns and photovoltaic energy harvesting for intelligent textiles Detailed coverage of applications in electronic textiles, including werable sensors for athletes, embroidered antennas for communication and electronic textiles for military personnel

Sustainable Fashion and Textiles: Design Journeys brings together for the first time information about lifecycle sustainability impacts of fashion and textiles, practical alternatives, design concepts and social innovation. It challenges existing ideas about the scope and potential of sustainability issues in fashion and textiles, and sets out a more pluralistic, engaging and forward-looking picture, drawing on ideas of systems thinking, human needs, local products, slow fashion and participatory design, as well as knowledge of materials. The book not only defines the field, it also challenges it, and uses design ideas to help shape more sustainable products and promote social change. While each of these chapters is complete in and of itself, their real value comes from what they represent together: innovative ways of thinking about textiles and garments based on sustainability values and an interconnected approach to design.

Electrochemistry is the study of chemical reactions with an exchange of electrons, and of the chemical phenomena that are caused by the action of applied currents and voltages. Analytical electrochemistry in textiles provides an overview of the synergy between electrochemistry and textiles, and the possibilities and innovative character of electrochemistry for textiles. Analytical electrochemistry in textiles is divided into four parts. In the first part an overview is given of the theory of electrochemistry as well as of practical considerations. The second part contains chapters in which the development of sensors is described for the optimisation and automation of textile finishing processes. In the third part the fundamentals of textile electrodes, used in a wide variety of applications, are summarised, as well as offering a developed study of a quality control method. Finally, the fourth part of the book is related to the functionalisation of fibres through chemical and electrochemical modification and some applications are given for these types of textile related electrodes. Written so that both non-electrochemists and non-textile specialists can understand it, Analytical electrochemistry in textiles is an important guide for textile, chemist and material science academics. It will also prove of great benefit for textile manufacturers, processors, dyers, colourists and finishers. Provides an overview of the synergy between electrochemistry and textiles An invaluable reference tool for textile, chemist and material science academics as well as textile manufacturers, processors, dyers, colourists and finishers
