Textiles are not only for the fashion conscious - they have important applications in the aerospace, automotive, construction, healthcare and sportswear industries. Already on the market are socks and leisurewear with embedded nanoparticles that combat odour through killing bacteria – and this capability has been extended successfully to wound dressings.
Several brands of clothing, including some designer labels, have incorporated self-cleaning and stain repellent nanotechnologies, very convenient for school clothes - and, of course, the less a garment needs to be washed, the more energy is saved! More glamorous applications include embedding gold nanoparticles into natural fabrics such as wool.
