Abstract

Textile production has been and continues to be a very traditional process. The fibre and textile markets have changed significantly in the past 20 years but some of the new fibres are merely reengineered fibres or of a type that has seen a revival and new marketing opportunities. Today, natural and man-made fibres are equally used for the production of clothes and other textiles. These fibres are often found in casework and may represent a contact between two or more people and/or items. Therefore, it is necessary to be aware of new developments in the market as these materials may be encountered in forensic cases. The focus of this chapter is on fibres and fibre developments which affect routine investigations.
