Smart Textiles


Smart textiles are textile products that have been designed and manufactured using modern technology to create a product that is not only functional but also stylish. Smart textiles can be made from a wide variety of materials including synthetic fibers, natural fibers, and even metal fibers. The most common type of smart textile is made from synthetic fibers such as polyester or nylon. These synthetic fibers can be woven into a variety of different fabrics including denim, corduroy, and microfiber. Natural fibers such as cotton and wool can also be used to create smart textiles. However, these natural fibers are not as strong as synthetic fibers and are not as resistant to wear and tear.

Some of the emerging trends in Smart Textiles include the use of nanomaterials for improved functionality, the use of conductive yarns and fibers for sensing and communication, and the use of textile-based energy storage devices.
