Aims & Scope

Addresses all aspects of the science and technology of clothing-objective measurement techniques, control of fibre and fabric, CAD systems, product testing, sewing, weaving and knitting, inspection systems, drape and finishing, etc. Academic and industrial research findings are published after a stringent review has taken place.


From labour-intensive, mechanically simplistic roots, the clothing industry is quickly becoming a high-tech, capital-intensive industry due to rapid advances in technology which contribute to high quality design, cutting, stitching and finishing techniques. The industry is one of the fastest-developing in the manufacturing sector, and it is essential that industry practitioners and researchers keep pace with the changes if they are to develop streamlined manufacturing processes and keep ahead of their competitors.
