Fibres and textiles

Producing functional fibres and textiles, re-purposing and recycling textile waste, and designing new materials and processes to add value to textiles are just some of our key research strengths.

Much of this research is carried out in the ARC Research Hub for Future Fibres, which is led by IFM. In partnership with several highly innovative companies and international research leaders, the Hub is accelerating transformation of Australia’s traditional manufacturing industry to a vibrant future-fibre oriented advanced manufacturing sector.
