The newest issue of the Journal of Textile and Apparel, Technology and Management (JTATM) is available.  Volume 9, Issue 3, contains seven refereed and four scholarly articles.

As it has been in the past, this issue also reports on diverse research topics dealing with acoustic textiles, spacer fabrics, firefighter gear, sewing variables, fashion retail concept, enzyme technology, tussar silk and terry Fabrics.

With an ongoing contract with EBSCO, the world’s leading information dissemination agency, the Journal (JTATM) has steadily increased its readership throughout the world. We believe JTATM is uniquely positioned for fusing the new consumer focused design, fashion and management issues with the traditional textile/fiber sciences and engineering for creating a holistic research community to satisfy the needs for all.

JTATM is coordinated by the Department of Textile and Apparel, Technology and Management, Wilson College of Textiles, North Carolina State University.
