Following a 100-year-old colour methodology, refined with 20 years of scientific innovation led by CTIC, Coloro uses logical codes and intuitive design to ensure fashion and textile professionals get the precise colour they planned for easily and accurately - first time around. Coloro is based on a 3D colour model which defines colour based on a distinct 7-digit code representing the point where Hue, Lightness and Chroma intersect. Of the potential 1.6 million colours available in that system, 3,500 have been selected for showcase in the Coloro products, based on global input from trend forecasters at WGSN, color experts at CTIC and creative and fashion industry leaders. The product - comprising physical and digital tools and a comprehensive consulting programme - provides a new dimension of colour intelligence. The digital tool, Coloro Workspace, launching in June, is set to open a new level of creative potential by changing the digital experience of working with colour forever. Thorsten Traugott, leader of the Coloro launch at Ascential said: "Coloro simplifies how we identify and create colours, enabling colour to be a truly strategic tool for the creative industry. Harnessing the colour expertise within CTIC, we worked closely with 80 leading influencers in the textile and fashion industry to ensure the product responded to their industry needs. The result is a product that is a true game changer." Detlev Pross, leader of the Coloro launch at CTIC, added: "There is opportunity to add massive value to the fashion industry by improving colour decisions and making colour communication consistent and accurate. Coloro combines colour science, color technology and consumer research to dramatically change how creative professionals work with colour across industry functions, from creatives to supply chain to strategists, improving workflow at every step.

A synthesized cationic reagent named polyamide-epichlorohydrin (PAE) was used to cationize cotton fabrics which were dyed with nanoscale pigments after PAE modification. The results showed that when the PAE concentration was below 7% (owf), the K/S value increased nearly linearly with increasing of PAE concentration, and excess that concentration the K/S value did not increase further. With increasing the pH value of cationization bath, the K/S value increased first and then decreased, the maximum K/S value appeared at pH 9-10. Cotton fabrics cationized at 80°C for 20 min exhibited the best cationizing result. Both the pigment uptake and the color strength reached their own maximum values when the dye bath was neutral. When the pigment concentration was 1% (owf) the addition of 1g/L sodium chloride in the dye bath could decrease the pigment uptake while for 5% (owf) pigment concentration the uptake increased with increasing the amount of sodium chloride. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

In order to have a better understanding of the jutecell knitted fabric wearability, in paired analysis, we used jutecell fabrics and cotton fabric, including plain stitch rib stitch and interlock stitch, to investigate basic mechanical properties of fabrics. The results showed that in three different organization of cernet knitted fabric sampel of jutecell, wear resistance rule, tabby was best, double rib was the second and rib was the worst. Gas permeability of plain stitch rib stitch and interlock stitch reduced inturn. The same three different cotton knitted fabric also showed the same rule. The other result was; the properties of jutecell knitted fabric, such as wear resistence philling resistence gas permeability were more than that of cotton kintted fabric.

The environment of global science and technology innovation has been evolving unprecedentedly, and the future of science and technology depends on the development of human society and the changes of living environment, so the future of science and technology should be expected from the viewpoint of evolution. It's quite clear that subversive innovation and technology break through are the normal landmarks of the evolution. In the future, there will be two paths of textile technology progress; subversive innovation and technology break through model and multi-technology integration, which could help realize the production with more outcome, higher speed, better quality and less cost. For textile technological progress path selection, a long term plan and the spirit of craftsman should be strongly required, so as to resolve the important science and technology according to the requirements of customers and end user and drive the needs for the long run.
