Technologized textiles and sustainable fabrics are
among the most innovative designed today, and
together they are driving the rest of the industry
dramatically forward. Many designers are now
integrating hi-tech fabrics, such as protective and
impact-resistant textiles, or cellulose fabrics, with
groundbreaking results. Embracing new processes
such as biomimicry, they bridge the gap between art,
design, technology, and sustainability more than any
This book shows how the development of fabrics
today is immersed in technology, sustainability, and
innovation. It is an essential resource for anyone
interested in contemporary textile design.
