Topic: Importance of textile

Sub-topic: the difference between natural and synthetic fibres


Importance of Textile:

Textiles are sorted into different grades and then recycled in the following ways:

Reuse: Good quality clothing and shoes are sorted for reuse by charities, these are later sent to underdeveloped countries at cheaper rates.

Manufacturing: If garments are ripped or worn, they can be cut into squares and used as industrial wipers.

Reclamation: Some fibres, such as pure wool, can be pulled apart, dyed, and woven into new garments.

Reclamation of Textile


Natural fibres are made out of natural materials that come from plants, animals, or minerals. The raw, natural materials are woven into threads and yarns that are then woven or knit into natural fabrics.

Synthetic fibres are made of synthetic materials, usually formed through chemical processes. The fibres are generally extracted during the chemical process using a spinneret, which is a device that takes polymers to form fibres.
