TI Sri Lanka Section recognises students’ work

The Textile Institute Sri Lanka Section held its annual general meeting at Brandix College of Clothing Technology, Ratmalana, last month. Over the course of 2018, the Sri Lanka Section arranged lectures in digital colour quality management, how sustainability and innovation help the clothing industry and wool applications in ballistic protection.

These showcase their work in supporting the cutting-edge methods available for the education of students entering the textiles industry in various fields.
