On Tuesday 15/01/2018 VARVARESSOS’ SA members visited the Technological Educational Institute of Kilkis – Department of Design and Clothing Technology – and attended student presentations for innovative textiles. Bold and interesting new ideas such as mixing cannabis nettles or corn fiber cloths were presented. A student has presented a survey showing how NASA’s microencapsulation technology can be applied to the textiles with jasmine and marjoram. Another study looked at the properties of spider webs that are tougher and harder than steel but very difficult to process. Cooperation with the university continues and we expect the students to visit our facilities.
