pioneering technologies, and improved understanding of textile materials

Taher Kaddar

JTSE introduces pioneering technologies, and improved understanding of textile materials, processes, chemistry and systems. It will encourage interdisciplinary research which will share newly developed technology, theory and techniques in the fashion and textile industries in the field of Fashion Technology - includes research in fashion design, pattern cutting, apparel production and manufacturing technology and in Textile Engineering deals with all activities and methods which are involved in the process of textile manufacturing. It is concerning to the design and organize of the fiber, apparel and textile process, machinery and products. This journal is main aims to publish including the all topics of fashion technology and textile engineering by the form of all type of articles, Books and video articles to reach the fashion world.

In order to address the needs of the current Covid-19 Pandemic

Prof. Changguo Wang

In order to address the needs of the current Covid-19 Pandemic for a safe face mask that can be worn for everyday wear published scientific

Research was culled and utilized in the design and materials for creating the Homemade with Love (HWL) filtered cloth mask.

Researchers from the Argonne National Laboratory at the University of Chicago in the United States reported that high thread counts 100 percent

Plain woven cotton or cotton blends, along with a combination of layering of different fabrics, with electrostatic-based filtration produces a mask

That can block “a vast majority of aerosol particles.” The HWL facemask meets the researcher’s findings, and it is compliant with the Center for

Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for homemade masks .

The two Categories of leather alternatives

Stephen J Russell

The two Categories of leather alternatives included Vegan Leather (mostly made with plastic coatings) and Eco-Friendly Leather alternative (materials that

Are “good” for the environment).

With a convenience sample (N=11) of fashion design students/consumers, data was collected via questionnaire with open and closed-ended

Questions, including questions about the participant’s knowledge and experience with purchasing leather and leather alternative products. Their

Knowledge of leather processing was also questioned.

The key results were that participants had various perspectives and attitudes about using leather and leather alternatives. Most had not heard of

More than one of the eco-friendly leather alternatives that was listed on the questionnaire and most did not have knowledge of the leather producing

Process. Those who had taken textiles courses previously stated that they covered leather and/or its alternatives either very little or not at all.

The findings have implications for various stakeholders including leather alternative manufacturers, fashion programs and instructors, textbook

Producers and retail establishments. A need was discovered to define specific terms to explain the differences between leather alternatives that

Use plastic toxins vs. leather alternatives that were better for the environment. Leather alternative terms were used interchangeably which could

Confuse consumers with what they were actually purchasing.

The conclusion was that leather alternative manufacturers could use these findings to see the need to better educate their consumers. Some of

The education that could be included is exposure to specifics about their products in terms of construction and components used in relationship to

Environmental and sustainability concerns. This specific information is not widely available to consumers and more education is necessary

Pleating is a sophisticated fabric manipulation

Xiaogang Chen

Pleating is a sophisticated fabric manipulation that has been practiced for thousands of years. In his 2016 exhibition ‘Manus X Machina’, Andrew Bolton listed pleating as an important couture technique along with embroidery, leather work and other garment production techniques. How pleating advances with technology and the new way to pleat have become issues in the garment production industry. Workshop preparation offers an opportunity to locate the study in a nonformal ‘laboratory’ condition in which concepts are challenged, presented and examined. Through working with the local community and a design professional in higher education, this research searches for unconventional perspectives from conducting experiments in academic and non-academic contexts and inspirations for future study
