The first national meeting of textile and clothing professors took place in Madison, Wisconsin in June 1959. With a mission to advance excellence in education, scholarship and innovation, and their global applications, the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) is a professional and educational association of scholars, educators, and students in the textile, apparel, and merchandising disciplines in higher education.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of using BC nonwoven as textile fabrics to make consumer products. The objectives were: 1) to study the influences of fermentation conditions on the production of BC fabric; 2) to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of BC nonwovens (thickness, weight, tensile strength, tearing strength, and stiffness); and 3) to study the possibility of producing inherently colored BC nonwovens.
