(Taylor & Francis, 2018-12-20)
This paper considers the potential for digital laser technology to facilitate sustainable innovation in the field of textile design and manufacture, enabling transition towards a circular economy. Using recent design ...
Selective enzymatic modification of wool/polyester blended fabrics for surface patterning
An enzyme-based process was investigated to achieve surface patterning of fabrics as an alternative to conventional chemical processes. In the current study, the enzyme protease was employed to selectively modify a ...
Innovative Technologies for Sustainable Textile Coloration and Surface Design
The environmental impact of textile dyeing and finishing is of paramount concern in the textile industry. Research into two emerging textile processing technologies, laser processing and enzyme biotechnology, were investigated ...
Enzyme-based Biotechnology for Textile Coloration and Surface Patterning
Textile wet processing, including preparation, coloration and finishing, significantly improves the performance of textile materials and apparel. However, conventional textile processes consume large quantities of water, ...
Laccase-catalysed coloration of wool and nylon
The potential for laccase (EC 220.127.116.11) to be used within the area of textile coloration, specifically for the generation of decorative surface pattern design, remains relatively unexplored. The current study presents a ...
