The textile industry manufactures a wide range of woven material, encompassing several classes of fibers made from plants (such as cotton, hemp, or flax), animals (such as wool, silk, or cashmere), and synthetics (such as nylon, polyester, or spandex). The textile manufacturing industry weaves these materials by utilizing a spinning process, which produces different cloth and fabrics.
Textiles are used to create many products, including clothing. The material is also used to create such products as baskets, bedding, rugs, curtains, and furniture upholstery. Textiles also have industrial purposes. As with any type of industry involved with the design and manufacturing of products, textiles may also become the subject of a lawsuit. There are cases in the garment or retail industry that require a litigator or insurance professional to hire a textile expert witness to support or defend a claim.
Textile engineering technology must be regulated for safety. Materials testing and quality assurance regarding flammability codes and standards is crucial for textiles. Faulty testing in fabric care and fabric flammability may result in injury and become the basis of a safety-related lawsuit, which would require a textile expert witness with experience in product specifications and other related areas.
Textile and fiber engineering must be manufactured with safety in mind, whether it’s for the industry manufacturers or product consumers. Garments, furniture, and any other textile-based product must be tested for quality assurance, as well as the safety of equipment used in the manufacturing process.
