Development of High Count Repurposed Yarns from Pre Consumer Textile Waste

Ananya Mitra Pramanik , Anjali Agrawal

Currently, pre consumer wastes are used to create low count repurposed yarns (RY) which has a limited usage in the floor covering industry. A previous research paper had established that there was a need to reduce the thickness of the existing repurposed yarns (RY) to increase its usage. Therefore, the objective of this present study was to undertake design intervention on the existing RY to change its count. Wider usage of RY can divert maximum pre-consumer textile waste from reaching the landfills. The count of the existing RY procured from Bhadohi was 0.23Ne which was made finer by using the manual spinning method. The methodology used in this study was of practice based research through which solutions were designed in the existing repurposed yarns to create higher count yarns and hence, make it suitable for generic end use. Two different counts of yarns were created in this research study, which were then characterized for their tensile strength, wash, and rub and perspiration fastness. The results of the characterization were compared to the existing RY. The modified repurposed yarns (MRY) were found to be 0.44Ne and 0.98Ne count which was much higher than the existing yarns. The tenacity of the yarns was mostly found to be improved in comparison to the existing RY yarns. Fastness properties of the yarns were also found improved in comparison to the existing yarns.

Nano science and technology research

Taher Kaddar

Most of us involved with textiles recognize the tremendous progress that is being made in nano textile science and engineering over the last decade. Journal of Textile Science & Engineering (JTESE) has been promoting this important research area with papers and editorials in the past, but more needs to be done. There is a large body of textiles related nano research that is suitable and indeed encouraged by the JTESE in nano coatings and membranes for high performance clothing for example, functionalisation of nano fibres and mats, medical nano textiles such as smart dressings, slow release and others. Nanotechnology deals with the creation of functional materials, devices and systems through the control of matter at the 1–100 nm scale or to put it in context about 80,000 the size of the human hair. For the first time material scientists have the opportunity to design and engineer materials and devices by the “bottom up” so-called approach, by manipulation of matter near the atomic scale and as such having the opportunity to be in precise control of their behavior. It is therefore revolutionizing this multidisciplinary field which marries together the fundamental sciences of physics, chemistry and biology

The effect of long time wears on thermal comfort properties of various parts of denim trousers

Lubos Hes1 Marie Manákova1 Olga Paraska

In this paper, thermal comfort parameters of various parts of selected standard denim trousers subject to 2 years of daily wearing are experimentally investigated, both under dry and wet state. The study is based on the use of fast testing instruments, which require small testing samples and quick measurement. From the study, it is inferred that wearing of denim trouser really changes the properties, some of them negatively, but the affected areas are small

Unique research and development for fibers and Textiles on an industrial scale

Melina Sachtleben1 Robert Brüll2 Franz Pursche3

The “Technical Fibres” division of the Institut für Textiltechnik of the RWTH Aachen University (ITA) is already developing innovative fibers of tomorrow today. As the world’s leading contact for industry- oriented research in mono- and multifilament melt spinning, the department is the main source for information on process optimization, digitization, material development, recycling and fictionalization

The roles of data analytics in the fashion industry

Keunyoung Oh

The importance of data has been gradually acknowledged by fashion professionals to improve sales and margins because fashion brands and retailers need to develop, manufacture, and sell styles that resonate with consumers. Lately, advancements in data analytics, machine learning, and computing power, the value of utilizing artificial intelligence (AI)-based software or applications has been well acknowledged by fashion brans and retailers who want to apply a data-driven decision-making approach to develop more efficient fashion design, merchandising, and marketing strategies. In this research, it is intended to review the roles and importance of data analytics in the fashion merchandising process. AI-powered data analytics applications or services that are currently available in the fashion industry are also introduced. Finally, a need for developing courses or programs focusing on fashion- specific data analytics in higher education is addressed as more and more fashion brands and retailers are trying to hire fashion data analysts. Collaboration with technology partners who are providing AI-powered data analytics services to fashion brands and retailers is needed to educate fashion students with practical knowledge and skills
