128 PSI SEMINAR ON THE TOPIC OF TEXTILE MATERIAL SCIENCE How is yarn made from fibres? What is the difference between woven fabrics, hosiery goods and knitwear? What is each kind of cloth used for? The differences cannot always be seen at a glance, yet are decisive for the quality and areas of application. In the basic seminar on textile material science in cooperation with the Akademie für Textilveredelung (Academy for Textile Finishing), speaker Birgit Jussen will elucidate the textile product chain, teaching the most important facts about fibres, materials and finishing, and explain which textile fibres are of natural origin and which are artificially produced. Various textiles will be examined by means of touching and looking. In addition, participants will receive a grid enabling them to estimate the differences with regard to quality, as well. The seminar will be held in Düsseldorf from 9 am to 5 pm on 20 September. More information is available under Seminars at www.psi-network.de and at Birgit Jussen: “There is a wide ran- www.aka-tex.de. < ge of textiles for promotion and corr porate fashion.
