Biomimetic textiles
Author(s): Michael S. Ellison

Paper Abstract

This talk presents a review of bioinspiration in textiles, and how biomimicry can lead to fibrous materials with specialized properties. After an abbreviated introduction to textiles, we focus on the fiber, as the elemental building block of textiles. The discussion centers on how biology has and will inform fiber engineering and science.
