Textile Technology students at Germany’s Albstadt-Sigmaringen University will be getting hands-on lessons in textile bonding techniques in a specially equipped laboratory. This first for textile technology students was achieved through a partnership between the university and Bemis Associates, producers of sew-free bonding solutions for a number of luxury brands.
A university spokesperson said that students would now be able to learn how to apply the latest innovations and techniques, equipping them to apply bonding technologies to solve design and construction challenges. The students will be given exposure to the use of the adhesive films, primer solutions and liquid adhesives that make the production of stitch-free garments possible.
Sew-free techniques allow apparel designers greater design flexibility, improve garment durability, and offer opportunities to enhance the aesthetics of finished products. The students at Albstadt-Sigmaringen University will now have the opportunity to test, research and physically work with sew-free adhesive solutions.
