Textile products play a vital role in meeting man’s basic needs. We often only consider textiles to be the clothes we wear. Obviously, the clothing industry is where the majority of textiles are produced and used. However, textiles are also important in all aspects of our lives from birth to death. The use of textiles has been traced back over 8500 years. The technological advances of textiles in various industries do not always get recognized as they do in the clothing industry.
