Investigation and Development of Bamboo Charcoal Yarn For Enhancing Comport Properties Synthetic Yarn
The newest concept in the world of fashion is eco-friendly textiles. There is a rapid increase in the usage of sustainable fabrics. Eco-friendly clothing is not only a positive step towards saving the environment, but also easy on the skin. In today's society, environment protection and health have become the pursuit of modern people. Researching and producing textile healthy for human have become a kind of fashion and as a result, functional textile becomes the mainstream in market. The fashion world is constantly seeking and latching onto new materials. One of the hot items is fabrics made from traditional materials, such as bamboo. Bamboo charcoal is made of bamboo culms and waste material from bamboo processing. On one hand, bamboo charcoal not only provides a new way to utilize bamboo, but also benefits to environment protection by reducing the residues pollution. On the other hand, bamboo charcoal is a kind of environmentally functional material which has excellent absorption and friendly properties to environment. The production of bamboo charcoal will promote the sustainable development of economy and ecology. This present study focuses on Nanotechnology induced enticement to develop renovating fibers with the advantages of both cotton and synthetics. The properties and performance of textile fibers are essential to fabric manufacturing and utilization. It was observed that the bamboo charcoal polyester blended with bamboo charcoal rayon had excellent UVprotection, IR emission and comfort properties compared with other categories of fabric under study.
