Textiles receive a range of treatments before they reach the end-user. From formaldehyde finishes (to improve crease-resistance) to biocidic finishes and from flame retardants to dyeing of many types of fabric the possibilities are almost endless. However many of these finishes may also have detrimental effects on the end user. A number of disperse acid and reactive dyes (for example) have been shown to be allergenic to sensitive individuals.24 Further to this specific dyes within this group have also been shown to induce purpuric contact dermatitis.
Textiles have an assortment of uses the most common of which are for clothing and for containers such as bags and baskets. In the household they are used in carpeting upholstered furnishings window shades towels coverings for tables beds and other flat surfaces and in art. In the workplace they are used in industrial and scientific processes such as filtering. Miscellaneous uses include flags backpacks tents nets handkerchiefs cleaning rags transportation devices such as balloons kites sails and parachutes; textiles are also used to provide strengthening in composite materials such as fibreglass and industrial geotextiles. Textiles are used in many traditional crafts such as sewing quilting and embroidery.
Since the 1990s with advances in technologies such as permanent press process finishing agents have been used to strengthen fabrics and make them wrinkle free.22 More recently nanomaterials research has led to additional advancements with companies such as Nano-Tex and NanoHorizons developing permanent treatments based on metallic nanoparticles for making textiles more resistant to things such as water stains wrinkles and pathogens such as bacteria and fungi.
