Functional Textile Fabrics ——The Fusion of Technology and Fashion
Textile fabrics are various fiber products processed through textile technology and are widely used in fashion, home furnishings, bedding, and many other fields. As the foundation of the fashion industry, textile fabrics play an indispensable role in the world of fashion.
Textile fabrics can be divided into four main categories: plant fibers, animal fibers, man-made fibers, and synthetic fibers. However, with technological advancements, the manufacturing techniques of textile fabrics continue to innovate, and functional textile fabrics have become a hot topic in the fashion industry. These special fabrics combine comfort and aesthetics with advanced technology, bringing more convenience and functionality to people's lives.
Functional textile fabrics utilize not only natural ingredients like cotton, linen, silk, and wool but also regenerated cellulose and synthetic fibers. Here are 8 fiber components:
(1) Zero Carbon Tencel™: Introduced by the Lenzing Group, is derived from renewable wood sources. By adopting more efficient production methods and utilizing renewable energy and new technology, it continually reduces carbon emissions, making it environmentally friendly.
(2) Acetate: We use Naia acetate fiber, produced by the Eastman factory in the United States. Its entire production process, from forest to finished product, is traceable, making it environmentally friendly and non-polluting.
(3) Tai chi stone: After professional processing, Tai chi stone is transformed into fiber and woven into fabric. This fabric emits energy consistently and has long-lasting antibacterial properties.
(4) Ice Ammonia: Introduced by the Tai chi Stone Company, this cool-feeling fiber efficiently wicks moisture, provides continuous cooling, and has antibacterial and breathable properties.
(5) Bamboo Charcoal: Bamboo charcoal fiber is made using a new process and technology that involves pure oxygen high-temperature and nitrogen gas barrier-delayed carbonization. This fiber has moisture-wicking and antibacterial properties.
(6) Coffee Charcoal: Coffee charcoal fiber is made from coffee residue after brewing. It undergoes high-temperature carbonization above 1000 degrees, and the resulting crystals are ground into nano powder. This fiber has natural antibacterial properties.
(7) Plant Fiber: Utilizing advanced technology, effective components are extracted from natural plants such as wormwood, honeysuckle, mint, and lavender, and then transformed into powdered form. The powder is incorporated into textile fibers, providing pure and natural antibacterial functionality.
(8) Copper Ammonia: This is a type of regenerated cellulose fiber with a silky texture and luster similar to silk.
Functional textile fabrics are becoming popular due to their antibacterial, waterproof, moisture-wicking, and UV protection properties. With these features, textile fabrics can be applied in a wide range of fields. Whether it's for home furnishings, outdoor sports, or the fashion industry, functional textile fabrics enhance the overall experience.
For outdoor activities like hiking, trekking, and skiing, the breathability and quick-drying capabilities of functional textile fabrics provide a more comfortable and pleasant experience for athletes. In daily home life, the waterproof feature of functional textile fabrics is highly beneficial, preventing liquids from permeating, thus protecting bedding and furniture. No longer will we worry about spilling water, mischievous pets, or kids accidentally wetting the bed, as functional textile fabrics offer a clean and comfortable solution.
In conclusion, functional textile fabrics are a rising star in the textile industry, combining technology and fashion to create a more comfortable, clean, and aesthetically pleasing environment. They allow us to enjoy fashion and comfort while offering convenience and protection in our daily lives.
