Articles of Pallavi which are published on Textile Learner during internship period.
Title 1: Sustainable Dyeing Methods in Textile Industry
Summary: The textile industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Synthetic dyes contribute to a major part of this pollution, with nearly 20 percent of global water pollution being linked to the textile dyeing processes. Conservation of water resources and the environment have become key issues of concern in textile manufacturing. Sustainable dyeing innovations can help reduce water usage, replace wasteful practices with efficient and cost-effective ones, and minimize the impact on our ecosystems. New sustainable advancements that enhance the dye ability are ultrasound, ozone, plasma, ultraviolet, gamma illumination, laser, microwave, particle implantation, air-dye and other waterless technologies.

Title 2: Sustainable Finishing Techniques in Textile Industry
Summary: Textile finishing determines a textile’s final appearance and aesthetic characteristics. It is also capable of altering numerous physical and chemical properties of textile materials in response to customer demands. Textile finishing process using natural products is economical, sustainable, have control over environmental and health hazard. Sustainable textile finishing techniques are helpful to save energy as well as auxiliaries. So, in short, we should adopt sustainability for better future. some of the sustainable finishing processes such as antimicrobial finish using natural ingredients, finishing using plasma, implementation of nanotechnology, ultrasound-based finishing, biopolishing are discussed.

Title 3: Wrinkle Resistant Finishing: Mechanism, Advantages and Disadvantages
Summary: Wrinkle resistant finishing is a method of coating fabrics with a chemical resin that acts as a crosslinker between hydrogen bonds, enhancing stability and preventing wrinkling. The ability of a fabric to recover to a specific degree is referred to as crease recovery. Fabrics consisting of cellulose, regenerated cellulose, and blends containing synthetic fibres have a higher tendency to wrinkle after washing, tumble drying, and wearing. Today, everyone desires that his or her outfit would keep its ironed shape. Wrinkle-free coatings give the fabric a silky, wrinkle-free appearance. Wrinkle-free treatments are widely used in the textile industry to give wrinkle-resistance to cellulosic materials such as cotton fabric.

Title 4: Different Methods of Degumming of Silk
Summary: Silk, a protein fibre, consists of two elements, namely fibroin, a filamentous protein, and sericin, a non-filamentous protein. The process of eliminating sericin, otherwise known as gum, is known as degumming. Degumming of silk involves the hydrolytic or enzymatic breaking of sericin’s peptide bonds, followed by the removal of sericin from the silk fibroin. Sericin can be hydrolysed in neutral, alkaline, or acidic conditions to produce four fractions with distinct characteristics. The most common degumming procedure is to boil off in an alkaline soap solution. Degumming of silk is essential to obtain an ideal fibre because of its modified fibre structure by scouring the sericin and some impurities from silk fiber.Overall process degumming of silk is explained in this article.

Title 5: Denim Dyeing with Indigo Dyes
Summary: Denim differs out from other cotton fabrics because it has a diagonal ribbing on one side. Indigo is used exclusively to produce brilliant blue shades with the desired wash-down effect. Despite the fact that indigo is a vat dye, it has no affinity for cellulosic in reduced and solubilized form, unlike other vat dyes. Exhaust dyeing fails to demonstrate such dye uptake, demanding the use of a multi-dip-nip padding procedure with intermediate airing to achieve a progressive shade build-up. pH is the most important dyeing parameter for achieving surface intensive ring dyeing effect and developing desirable effect. Complete denim dyeing process with advantages and disadvantages is explained here.

Title 6: Waterless Dyeing Technology in Textile Processing
Summary: The textile sector is considered to be one of the largest water consumers. Water is utilized extensively in traditional textile dyeing, both in terms of fresh water input and effluent discharge. Many pre-treatments and finishing operations, such as washing, scouring, bleaching, and dyeing, require water as a solvent. On average, 100-150 litres of water are required to process 1 kg of textile material, with the dyeing process consuming 16% of this total. Water is the world’s most valuable natural resource, with more than 97 percent of it being salty and only 2.5 percent being fresh water. Two waterless dyeing technology i.e. air dye technology and supercritical fluid dyeing are discussed in this article.
Title 7: Application of Biotechnology in Textile Industry
Summary: Biotechnology is one such field that is transforming traditional textile production into environmentally friendly processing. Two significant drivers for the textile industry to integrate biotechnology in its different domains are consumer knowledge and expectations for higher-quality fabrics, as well as environmental awareness. Biotechnology also offers the prospect of innovative industrial processes that use less energy and focus on renewable resources. It’s vital to remember that biotechnology isn’t just about biology; it’s a truly interdisciplinary area that covers both natural and engineering sciences. The textile business is driven to conserve natural resources, decrease waste, and lower expenses. Traditional cloth dyeing, printing and finishing processes use a lot of water and might result in hazardous waste as a by-product. Biotechnology, which consists of numerous enzymatic treatments, is utilized to minimize this.
Title 8: Functional Textiles: Classification, Application and Market Review
Summary: One of the most important fields in the textile industry and textile materials science is functional textiles. Fabrics with a set of integrated features for controlling or changing according to their application are known as functional textiles. Textiles of this type are typically made with a focus on functionality rather than aesthetics. Functionality, versatility, compatibility, flexibility, and interactivity are all characteristics of smart textiles. Temperature management, humidity control, health monitoring, sports training, position tracking, protective clothing, abrasion resistance, anti-bacterial characteristics, moisture absorption, quick-drying functions, and many other functions might be included.

Title 9: Recent Advancements in Textile Printing
Summary: Printing has always been an important tool for improving the aesthetic quality of textile materials. During the last few decades, there have been rapid advancements in textile printing technology, particularly in terms of the machinery used for printing, print manufacturing and post-treatment of printed fabrics, in order to meet the demand for high rates of production and complexity in such printing. This article includes some textile printing methods with their recent advancements. Textile printing methods have advanced recently, resulting in time and cost savings. Textile printing is becoming more easier, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective.

Title 10: List of Eco-friendly Fibers in Textile Industry: Properties and Application
Summary: Environmental degradation and the resulting global warming are two of the most significant threats to species on this planet. In every field, industrialization is to responsible for these issues. It is essential to begin utilizing eco-friendly fibers in the production of eco-textiles. This article includes some of the eco-friendly fibres with their special properties and application. Ecofibres namely bamboo fibre, banana fibre, jute fibre, nettle fabric, lyocell fibre, SeaCell fibre are explained in this article.
