Did you know that plastics are in our clothing?
We find that people who visit the museum do not always realise that there are plastics in textiles. There are many synthetic materials, such as nylon and polyester, which have specific properties that make them perfect for use in clothing.
MoDiP is currently showing an exhibition all about plastics in clothing. Threads:plastics wearing well can be view until 4 September and is also available online.
