  • Need project idea for textiles

    Are you planning to do a project in textiles domain? Searching for innovative ideas here? o ntihs page our experts shall suggest ideas, which are not replicas but may be new ifdeas or omdificaitons ot existing project.

    I am currently pursuing BSc Textiles. I need an innovative project idea related to textiles. It should be unique, can be related to technical textiles but should not be a replica. The idea can be related to modifications of already developed project. The idea implemtnaiton time duration is 6 months and thesis should be submitted in next one or two months.

  • Textile is a very big area. There was a time when textile was limited to only some cotton clothes and cotton yarn but today we have a plethora of wearable materials derived from polyester, cotton, a combination of these two, PVC, plastic, and many other synthetic chemical fibres which give different type of wearable materials and the list of such products is endless as the same is used in various industrial applications as well as in households.

    We can conceive many ideas in this arena and pursue our project in that line. Some of the project ideas that I can conceive are as below -

    1. Developing a material which can stop all types of bacteria and virus passing through it when we use it for medical purposes. This could be an interesting project where the designed textile would have mini pores smaller than the smallest of the virus. Whether it would be feasible to do it with the multilayer yarn grid laying or simply fusing the two thin layers of the textile sheets or any other better idea - all these can be studied and carried out for completion of this particular project.

    2. Another project could be to visualise and prepare large area filters made out of some poly-cotton or polyester or synthetic sheets which can increase the output in some chemical industries by increasing the filtration rate and efficiency of filtration. There is a big need of such research work to find out new combinations of fine sieved textile sheets capable of withstanding long hours of filtration while maintaining the quality of the process. The conventional filters are smaller in sizes and allow limited quantity to pass through them.

    3. One important area is high strength textile material which can be designed and fabricated for use in calamity conditions when a large number of people are sifted from the flood or cyclone areas to some suitable place by erecting a temporary shelter with such materials. High strength textile material can be of great value and help in such times. This would be a good area to try the project.

    4. There is a big need for inventing cotton like textile clothing which does not require any ironing before wearing them for various occasions. They should be wrinkle free and straight when worn by the people when they are hurriedly proceeding for their jobs or other important assignments. This seems to be a very lucrative project area.

    Knowledge is power.

  • There are many requirements these days for the development of various new textiles. Some of them are given below.
    1. Chemical industries will be using many acids and alkalis in the process. The effluents are to be treated properly before discharging them. In these processes filtration an important unit process. For that purpose, the industry requires acid resistant and alkali resistant fabrics. Presently some are available but they are very costly and needs frequent replacement. So developing a new fabric for this is a need.
    2. Chaffs are very important in the defence industry and basically chaffs are cotton fabrics coated with suitable chemicals. In India, nobody is making this and the defence industry is mainly dependent on imports and they are paying a heavy cost for it. Finding out a suitable fabric for this and making into chaff is also an important project. Some of the DRDO laboratories doing some research and they may be looking for some ideas and projects.
    3. Another need for the industry is a cloth for filtration of nanoparticles. It is very difficult to find a suitable cloth for this purpose and the nano industry is having a problem in finding suitable clothes. If the nanotechnology is based on mechanical processes, there is no problem. But in some cases, we will be using precipitation technics where the requirement of finer cloth is coming,

  • Well, a very affordable and cheap idea for textile and related areas of production is 3D printing. It has already become a game-changer in the automobile sector and the construction industry. Basically you can set up your own unit of production with a 3D printer customized to the kind of textile that you're planning to launch. It's extremley cheap and cost effective. Also as members above have pointed the kind of textiles you create can also be innovated a current area of research is shapeshifting origami based textiles created from simple recyclables. These can be stiched together in a customized 3D printer to create new designs.

    Hope this helps!!!

  • As you are in search of a project idea related to textiles, I will list down some of the innovative project ideas that you can take or modify to make a project of your own that can be completed within the stipulated time. You are the best judge to understand the project by going through its ideas and then selecting the best by careful study of the output, its value for the textile industry, the impact that will happen due to this project or technology, etc that can get you good marks for your project. here is the list of projects that you can choose or modify accordingly:
    innovative project ideas
    1. A mobile app for various garment factory activities
    2. LED clothing that can be used for functions, competitions, etc.
    3. Bio-Fabrics that create biology-inspired materials
    4. Safety Jacket for Riders that can be like the airbag
    5. Leak Proof Garment that can be used during the rainy season
    6. Electrically heating clothing for the cold-weather climate
    7. An automatic ironing system for the garment factory
    8. Removal of loose stitch or Knit on garments
    9. Colour-changing clothes (like the one you get -mug changing its clour when it gets hot)
    10. Auto repair clothes that repair itself (The one that they used in Mangalyaan mission)
    11. Active Sportswear that soaks sweat and keeps it cool and dry for sports and people working in hot weather
    12. Refreshing clothing that refreshes as you get hot and cold by releasing perfume or smell.

  • I thank all of you for your ideas! It was of great help!

  • While looking for the markets for textiles, we can see the environmental impact of petroleum based fibres like acrylic, polyester nylon and spandex. It is now the time for the textile industry to look for the sustainable alternatives proving that the production of textile and clothing does not require to pollute the environment. Here are some alternatives which can provide better substitutes in the upcoming times -
    1) Hemp Fibre - It can be produced by Hemp which are antibacterial in nature, durable and resilient. Hemp is a fast growing plant consuming very little water and does not require pesticides, synthetic fertiliser or GMO seeds. China at this moment has more than 600 international patents in hemp fibres and textile production. In the upcoming time, this type of variant is supposed to be more popular.
    2) Nettle Fibre - Stinging Nettle fibres are versatile, keep the wearer warm in winter and cool in summer. An important charecterstics to this plant is that it can be grown with less water and pesticides as compared to cotton. In relation to its plantation, no restriction is required and hence it has made the plant a viable and legal market fruit.
    3) Coffee Ground Fibres - We are in the habit of throwing the Coffee Ground once we make Coffee but the Coffee Ground Powder may be used for the preparation of polymer creating master batches before spinning to yarn. The resulting coffee yarn is multifunctional and can be used in a variety of products from outdoor to sports performance wear to household items used everyday.
    4) Pineapple Fabrics Leaves - London based Annanas Anam has developed a natural and non woven textile out of Pineapple Leaves which takes its appearance similar to leather.It is strong in texture, versatile, breathable, soft and flexible material which can further be printed and making it suitable for a number of fashion products.
    5) Banana Fibre- It is one of the world's largest fibres made from the stem of banana trees and is incredibly durable and biodegradable. This fibre can be used to make a number of textiles with variable weights and thicknesses. Banana Fibres can be used to make ropes, mats, woven fabrics apart from handmade papers.
