[ Technical Textiles - Smart Fabrics ]

New funding for smart fabrics.
Yorkshire Forward is investing £165,000 in the Leeds, UK-based Nonwovens Innovation & Research Institute (NIRI) to develop a fabric that will have many commercial uses ranging from medical to protective clothing. Hydrospace is a new non woven fabric which has channels running throughout, that can be filled with liquids, gels, or solid particles.
