From Biofabrication to Tech-infused Wearables, the textile industry is changing at a faster pace. Newer technologies are giving their vital contribution towards the growth of textile.

Let’s take a look at where manufacturing of fabric has pulled over since all these years.

Conventionally, manufacturing fabrics was a long and tiresome process. Low-Skilled workforce, limited education & ever fluctuating payments, the workers worked for long in a very uncertain environment risking their lives.

Now, technologies & innovations are changing the textile industry for better.Technology contributors are working more on service-oriented designs wherein smart products and smart machines are connected which allows us to monitor the process working closely.

Back in 20th century,1000 new fabric designs were created & produced every season. The further manufacturing process was totally dependent on people’s poll. Tradeshows were arranged for mass publicity of the new collections.

Today, however, the rules have changed a bit. Of course, people’s poll is still important! But what we can do is simply rely on technology and watch the machines achieve the goals by breaking the paradigms. Designing & manufacturing with tech takes less time to produce and often reduces the costs.

Digitizing the designing manufacturing & marketing process has led to high efficiency & shortened delivery time. The labor now, is not only skilled but a critical thinker (educated & technically skilled to monitor the computer-driven machines and environment), hence these are all well-paid positions in the industry.
Now we can simply design the fabrics, store the whole collection in the cloud with the help of computerized machines, and showcase it to the prospects all across the world.
