The Textile Institute serves the information needs of textile professionals in a variety of ways and through a partnership with

1) The Textile Institute Book Series (Elsevier) Series Editor

2) CRC Press (Taylor & Francis) Textile Institute Professional Publications

3) The Textile Institute and Greenleaf Publishing Sustainability in Textiles

4) The Textile Institute – Bloomsbury Series (1)

5) The Textile Institute – Bloomsbury Series (2)

1) The Textile Institute Book Series (Elsevier) Series Editor

The series is intended to be a world-leading collection of books in the fields of fibre technology and properties, textile manufacturing and process technology, and technical textiles. The series will include research-based monographs, ‘text/reference’ titles providing detailed coverage of advanced topics, and in-depth reviews of new and developing technology. The intention is for these books to be relevant to researchers, engineers and product developers working with textiles in both academia and industry. In order of priority, books will generally fall under these topics:

  • Technical Textiles: medical, smart, and protective textiles and textiles for other high performance applications such as composite reinforcement, automotive and aerospace.
  • Fibre Technology and Properties: production, characterization, properties, performance, testing, modelling and applications of textile fibres.
  • Textile Manufacturing and Processing Technology: includes industrial manufacturing techniques of textiles (e.g. weaving, knitting, nonwoven production)

2) Textile Institute Professional Publications (CRC Taylor & Francis)

The aim of the series is to support textile professionals in their work and to help emerging professionals* by providing the information needed to gain a sound understanding of key and emerging topics relating to a range of textile related subjects.

The Textile Institute/CRC Press are currently inviting proposals from authors in the following areas:

  • Textile technology
  • Textile chemistry
  • Materials science and engineering
  • Clothing technology
  • Footwear technology
  • Smart textiles
  • Medical textiles
  • Protective textiles – and a host of other textile related end-uses

3) The Textile Institute and Greenleaf Publishing Sustainability in Textiles

The Textile Institute and Greenleaf Publishing have partnered to produce a ground-breaking new book series entitled Sustainability in Textiles. As the second largest industry in the world, textiles and textile production have a huge impact on the environment, the people who work within the industry and the development of business and government policy at a global level.

The Textile Institute, the world’s leading institution for the industry, defines Sustainable Textiles and Apparel in the following ways:

  • Safe for humans and the physical environment;
  • Made from renewable materials;
  • Produced through making the most efficient use of resources such as water and energy;
  • Manufactured by people employed in decent working conditions;
  • Capable of being washed at low temperature using environmentally friendly laundering agents; and Capable of being returned safely to the environment at the end of their useful life (Performance Apparel Market, 2009).
  • The Textile Institute and Greenleaf Publishing are currently accepting proposals. We are particularly interested in contributions on the following topics:
  • Sustainable textile products and eco-textiles (including cradle to cradle initiatives)
  • Human rights and working conditions of people employed within the textile industry
  • Social responsibility and corporate governance within the industry (manufacturers, carriers, researchers, policy-makers), and in different geographic regions
  • Sustainability within the textile supply chain
  • Institutions, structures and organisations (e.g. the role played by collaborative initiatives such as the UN Global Compact) and the impact on the textile industry
  • The public policy implications of responsible textile production, and the role that industry plays in public policy debates on environmental, social, legal, market and governance issues
  • Building the market for responsible textiles, focusing on how the industry reflects changes in market requirements and how the industry can positively influence the market
  • Identifying sustainability issues within specific sectors of the textile industry, for example, fashion, floor coverings, clothing, furnishings, scientific instruments

4) The Textile Institute – Bloomsbury Series (1)

The Textile Institute and Bloomsbury are delighted to announce that they are in discussions to launch a new joint book series.  The series is intended to be a world-leading collection of books in the fields of clothing design, fashion design and aesthetics and footwear design. The series will include specialist research-based monographs, ‘text/reference’ titles providing detailed coverage of advanced topics and in-depth reviews of new and developing design related topics in the areas of the author’s established expertise.  The intention is for these books to be relevant to researchers, academics and post graduate students. The books will generally fall under these topics but this is by no means an exhaustive list:

  • Design aesthetics, influence of cultural and social attitudes, history and retrospective.
  • Anticipating change and forecasting
  • Interpretation of design trends for specific audiences
