Project description

TOUCHE! is an ambitious project with technological and scientific challenges that aims to develop a set of fast, cost-effective and reliable objective test methods and improved textiles-skin models for assessment of Hand of Textiles (HoT) and Fabric Feel (FF). In addition to clothing aesthetics, these two properties are crucial elements that influence clothing purchasing as they express how consumers experience textiles by touching them with the fingers and respectively by wearing them.
