TEXAS – VF Corp has established a new partnership with tech business FibeRio Technology which will see the US clothing giant explore the potential of nano-fibre materials and technologies. The partnership, which centres on FibeRio's Forcespinning technology platform and – claimed - ability to produce nano-fibre material in high volumes, will see VF incorporate FibeRio's capabilities and expertise across its three Global Innovation Centres which focus on advancements in performance apparel, footwear and jeans-wear. Many feel that nanotechnology - the manipulation of matter on a near-atomic scale to produce new structures and materials - will play a prominent role in the textile industry in the future.
