This book reveals the expanding opportunity of textiles in a wide range of industrial applications. No longer limited to apparels and home furnishings, textiles are being used in many sciences and technologies, such as clothing and fashionable materials, smart textiles, technical textiles, medical textiles, agro-textiles, geo-textiles, electronics, photonics, intelligent sensors, etc.

This book is intended for all those who are interested and engaged in the latest developments in the field of textiles, especially chemists, engineers, technologists, application technicians and colorists of the textile industry, technical colleges and universities.

Textiles are essential and one of the most important classes of materials used by all people since ancient time. Despite textiles having been around and in use for so long, advances and improvements continue to be made. This book contains 22 invited contributions written by leading experts in the field of textiles. Each contribution presents an updated science and technological advances that have happened during this period and are fully discussed. The first chapter discusses the present and future prospects of vintage fashion clothing, i.e., an old fashion clothing and its retailing. Chapter 2 searches for the dynamic best method for producing specific washing effects and designs on denim ready-made apparels. The chapters 3 and 4 present a discussion on color management application in the field of digital printing onto textile substrates, and inject printed photo-responsive textiles used in fashion and design, self indicating security alert systems, anti-counterfeit and brand protection. In chapter 5 and 6, an attempt has been made to cover the most up-to-date information regarding synthesis, and application of cellulose derivatives and azo dyes on textiles. Smart textiles incorporated with different functionalities have many uses in a variety of fields, some of them are widely used in the fields of biomedical or healthcare applications. The smart textiles and its multi-disciplinary applications have been well discussed in chapters 7 and 8. In chapters 9, 10 and 11, preservation of textile objects in different environments like home, stores, museums etc. have been discussed. These chapters also discussed how to protect textiles from bacterial and fungal deterioration. An elaborative discussion has been made in Chapters 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 on the new applications of textile materials through modification by physico-chemical methods. The modification has been done to obtain durable, comfort, sustainable and environment friendly finished products using various organic and inorganic chemicals for much better performance. Use of micro-capsulation techniques to modify textiles offers extra-properties, e.g., durable fragrances, skin softeners to textiles. Electronic applications of textiles have been discussed in chapter 17. Textiles, from fibers to fabric, with integrated special electronics are more and more used as special materials in newly developed smart clothing. The chapter 18 specifically focuses on the technological advances with regard to development of textiles for cardiology purpose, i.e., cardiac care. The thermoregulatory process of human body, the thermal comfort properties of fabrics and the effect of clothing material on the thermoregulatory process of human body in different weather conditions has been discussed in Chapter 19. In chapter 20, effort has been made on diversification of jute specifically, development of jute-based materials for thermal insulating applications. The main aim of chapter 21 is to utilize the ring flanges and travellers of ring spinning, which is the most effective staple yarn production process, for the yarn quality in terms of hairiness, twist, breaking strength and irregularity. The last chapter 22 gives an introduction into the techniques of confocal laser spinning microscopy, and depicts optical differences between several textile fibers, enabling a non-destructive examination of natural and chemical fibers.
