Innovation is the key to consolidating and continuing our success. This is why we collaborate with numerous research centers and universities for the creation of new textile materials.
We have started collaborations with Italian and international aeronautical and space industries for the study and design of smart textiles.
Smart Textiles are materials capable of “functioning like a brain”, with a capacity for knowledge, preparation and response, which react to environmental conditions and various stimuli such as: mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical and magnetic.
Smart fabrics are used to improve comfort, well-being, hygiene, health, continuous monitoring, climate control, thermal insulation, protection against harmful radiation …
Over the last 10 years, the efforts of Tessitura Ballesio have been projected to study a third generation of intelligent fabrics: therefore able to feel, react and adapt to environmental conditions or various types of stimuli.
