The hemp (cannabis sativa) plant has many
more uses than you might think-including
fiber. This presentation will introduce the idea
of using hemp fiber as a means to increase
sustainability in textiles and contribute to a
circular economy. The presentation will explore
how the integration of a natural fiber such as
hemp can change the properties of common
knit footwear structures.

NASA Flammability Standards
for the Selection of Textiles in
Space Programs
Evelyne Orndoff, Textiles Engineer, NASA
NASA has developed flammability standards
for the use of materials in space programs.
The selection and the development of textiles
suitable for space applications are driven
by these flammability standards. These
standards are unique as they address the
burning behavior of materials in various
atmospheres and gravitational environments.
Atmospheres enriched in oxygen and with
reduced pressure in micro-gravity present a
great challenge for the use of textiles since
few types of fibers are available.
