Turning technology in to fashion
Researchers at two universities are looking at ways of boosting the textile industry through new colouring and patterning technologies.
Post-graduate students from Loughborough University's School of the Arts and De Montfort University's School of Fashion and Textiles are investigating the best uses of new technologies.
They believe using enzyme and laser technology could significantly cut the use of chemicals, the amounts of water and energy used and effluent produced.
They have received more than £200,000 from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and won support from Speedo, Camira Fabrics and Teresa Green Design.
