North Carolina’s rich history in textile production dates back to the 1800s and today serves as the location of several of the most important global textile companies, industry associations and educational resources. North Carolina leads the U.S. in the textile mill industry with over 700 textile manufacturing establishments and over 42,000 industry workers. In addition, North Carolina State University’s College of Textiles, located in downtown Raleigh, serves as a hub for textile research and development and as a primary supplier to the industry talent pipeline nationwide.

Cooling fabrics, smart light technology, recycled fibres, 3D body scanning, and cloud connected smart machines were just some of the highlights during the fifteenth edition of Techtextil North America, and fourth Texprocess Americas that took place in 2018.
