Bill Macbeth, Managing Director of the Textile Centre of Excellence, said: "We're extremely excited about this brand new website, which has been created as an open network for professionals involved in technical textile and clothing-related research and innovation across the region, the UK, Europe and beyond.
"One of the most innovative features of the website is the dedicated knowledge section, which provides useful information about technologies, material functionalities, market sectors and materials. It's in this section that the science of the materials is explained, as well as their function and how they are being innovatively used."
