Most Recent Report on Leading Edge Technologies for Textile Finishing Published by

LONDON – Today’s consumer is more finicky than ever, demanding enhanced aesthetics and comfort in apparel, as well as higher levels of protection, performance and easy care properties. To compound the problem, consumers are spending less on apparel – choosing to spend their disposable income on healthcare, electronics, education, and travel and leisure. Thus, it is more important than ever to innovate. Recent developments in fabric and garment finishing technologies are spicing up commodity products.

The development of unique fabric and garment finishes comes with a host of challenges. Finishes must be durable during the fabric finishing process, stable in the presence of other chemicals, wash-fast, and evenly and consistently applied. Moreover, they also need to be financially feasible and environmentally friendly.
