The producer of INOTEK, a biomimetic fibre, and technical director at MMT Textiles, a research and development company, Veronika Kapsali, has been named the Innovator of the Year at the ITMA Future Materials Awards ceremony held on 26 November, 2014 at Dresden, Germany.

Veronika Kapsali is the inventor and co-director at MMT Textiles, a company that developed INOTEK, a biomimetic fibre-based textile technology that uses moisture in clothing microclimate to create a mechanical response for advanced moisture management.

Veronika is a leading expert in the field of clothing comfort and biomimetic textiles, with a body of published work on the subject. She is a regular presenter at international conferences.

She has also undertaken a variety of consultancy projects including trend research for the materials collection at the London College of Fashion Library, sourcing textiles for the department of agriculture in Western Australia, as well as comfort perception and the consumer for Unilever. She has also project managed an e-learning resource specialising in textile technology.

Veronika has worked in the fashion sector since 1999 as a studio manager and freelance textile designer, before migrating to R&D. In 2004 she began as a lecturer in textile technology and design development at the London College of Fashion while studying for her doctorate in biomimetic textiles at the University of Bath’s mechanical engineering department.

Organised by World Textile Information Network (WTiN), the inaugural ITMA Future Materials Awards celebrated innovation in the textile sector and recognised the essential work of the many businesses that support the industry. (GK)
