Innovation and R&D in technical textiles continue to be as fascinating as ever, and at Future Textiles we aim to bring you the most cutting-edge, groundbreaking developments as they emerge in this growing sector. Each issue we will also provide extra insight into one of the six core application areas in this field: Mobiltech, Sporttech, Hometech, Clothtech, Medtech and Protech.

You can also expect to find greater coverage of some exciting fields such as wearable technology and graphene, as we keep you up to speed with the rapid developments across the industry.

This year, of course, is the year of the Future Textiles Awards. In addition to previewing the show, we will be providing a full report on the event and staying in touch with the winners – so we can keep tabs on how successful they have been in getting their ideas to market.

Future Textiles continues to be an attention-grabbing read with content that reflects the pioneering, state-of-the-art nature of technical textiles. It has resulted in readers from throughout the value chain, including Nike, Adidas, 3M, Teijin, WL Gore, The North Face, the US Army, DuPont and Apple.
