Your conference will take place Monday 22nd of January from 11.30am till 12.30pm.
Giving fabrics the prestige they deserve
Textile finishing techniques transform materials, changing simple weaves or standard knits into high-added value fabrics.
Embellishing a knit through colour, hand-feel or texture, enhances the fabric by giving it its own identity. Finishing a fabric—with a treatment, special finish or print—adds value by giving it a new appearance, handle or additional function.
Can textile finishing really make all the difference to a collection? Which techniques are currently available to give products that extra lift, enhance designs or customize garments? How have techniques changed? Can they be combined?
Where is the latest research heading?
Textile finishers, fabric producers, designers and textile designers discuss the advantages of transforming fabrics and explore new areas for development, from both an aesthetic and technological point of view.
