Abstract

Purpose - To establish new measurement technologies in textiles and clothing. Design/methodology/approach - Three areas are covered, diverse in methodology and approach: measurement of fabric mechanics, measurement of seam quality, and measurement of human size and shape. Findings - Three new measurement technologies have been established. Research limitations/implications - The mechanics are limited to the measurement of lightweight fabrics. The human measurement needs clear photographs. Practical implications - All techniques can make measurement more accurate and efficient in all three areas. Originality/value - All techniques are original and have a major contribution to textile and clothing science and technology. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
