Textile Technology

Textiles are not just used for clothing but are regarded as platforms for innovation.

The research activities within Textiles draw on the inherent flexibility and versatility of fibres and use their chemical and physical structures to produce novel fibre-based products used in medical textiles, sportswear, air and liquid filtration, geotextiles, personal-protection clothing, and construction and packaging materials.
