Innovation in Textiles was launched in 2009, one year after the launch of Knitting Industry. Based on the success of our first publication, we realized there was a need for a publication dedicated to the many new technologies that were being introduced into the traditional world of textiles and had the potential to completely revolutionize the entire industry.

Our intuition proved right and readership has grown rapidly for this particular site. We continue to follow the many innovations in technical textiles as they develop from early stage technologies to commercial realities.

As a result, we have developed a site which has fresh, rich content added every day, a comprehensive resource of articles, opinion and reports on all aspects of the industry, formatted for desktop, tablet or smartphone. Our site is a trusted source of information for readers, as well as a robust platform for our industry partners to promote themselves to new and existing markets and audiences.

The dynamic nature of our content gives us high visibility in the industry and on search engines, and our extensive social media network enables our users to engage and connect with each other. We categorise our content according to both technology and industry sector, making it easier to find content relative to a reader’s specific interests.

We provide everything needed to enable industry professionals to keep ahead of trends, access up to date information and research their own areas of interest.

Technical Textiles Finder: Global directory of technical textiles suppliers

Readers often ask us where they can source the technical textiles products we write about and how they can reach the companies we mention in our articles. In response to this we developed a comprehensive global directory for the industry called Technical Textiles Finder, which is now fully integrated into the Innovation in Textiles news website.

Products and companies are categorized in much the same way as the news website but in much greater depth, making Technical Textiles Finder the go-to place to find industry suppliers.
