The Importance And Benefits Of Different Textiles

Formal Wear

This fashion term denotes the clothing that is worn to formal events such as weddings, balls, and other various professional settings. The textiles used for formal wear often are more expensive and more distinguished such as silk, velvet, and cashmere.

Silk is believed to have many heath benefits such as being able to prevent allergies, naturally regulate temperature, and even improve skin.

Velvet is synonymous with luxury and is seen as both soft and delicate. The benefits of cashmere share some properties with velvet, as well as being lightweight, moisture wicking, and less prone to wrinkling.

Sports Wear

Sportswear has developed tremendously over the last decade with many sweat wicking and breathable fabrics, like polyester, the benchmark for sportswear. Not only do these fabrics help you stay cool and dry during a workout but can also help reduce the number of bacteria present. Training in extreme weather climates is no longer so much of a challenge due to great insulators that can keep the body both cool in hot climates and warm in colder ones.

Some examples of textiles used in sportswear is Lycra. A branded name for elastane; when combined with another fabric provides the stretchy fabric that is commonly found in sportswear to aid movement. Another example is mesh that offers comfort while offering a high level of ventilation.

Safety Wear

There is a whole range of textiles used for safety wear with different textiles ranging from natural wools to manmade fibres like nylon.

Heavy fabrics like canvas are key to preventing grazes, cuts, and bruises from heavy and sharp objects, which could be used in gloves or protective layers.

Synthetic fibres such as Kevlar are incredibly strong due to the strong threads that are over double the strength of nylon and polyester. These textiles are incredibly important in the development of cut and stab proof fabrics.


Carpeting is important in many colder climates and provide many benefits other than retaining warmer air for longer. Carpeting is also seen as a fairly inexpensive textile for decorating rooms, rather than hard wood or tiled floor.

Having a textile flooring is generally accepted as gentler on the joints and feet, while providing a non-slippery surface that could pose problems for people with reduced mobility or pets. Should someone fall, carpeting provides a much softer fall that on hard wood or tiles.

In addition, adding carpeting to rooms offer a level of insulation and sound proofing, so are often a top choice within multi story apartments.
