During the ITMF Annual Conference 2012 in Hanoi/Vietnam this new Committee was established in order to provide a platform for textile manufacturers that are interested in new applications for both man-made and natural fibres in and beyond the traditional applications in apparel and home textiles, namely in the field of technical textiles.

The Committee's objective is to present new developments in the applications of fibres, to discuss opportunities and challenges of new applications of fibres and exchange experiences and information.
