We are pleased to announce a Special Issue titled “Fibrous Materials (Textiles) for Functional Applications” in Textiles, an open access MDPI journal. Fibrous/textile materials constitute an inseparable component of our day-to-day life. Their importance ranges from baby diapers to life-saving protective textiles in military and space applications. The geometrical flexibility and physical–chemical diversity of functional fibrous materials makes them a preferred substitute over metals, ceramics, and other forms of polymers. Fiber-based functional textiles are widely used in technical applications. e.g., acoustic textiles, electronic textiles, fiber-reinforced structural composites, geotechnical textiles, healthcare and medical textiles, nanoenabled textiles, protective textiles, smart clothing, sports textiles, thermos-regulating textiles, and so on.
A recent trend in fibrous material is to focus on biobased materials to reduce carbon emission, which ultimately hampers our environment. In view of the new challenges faced by humanity, the biological and health-related issues can be tackled to a great extent by suitable innovative materials based on fibrous/textile systems.
The Special Issue is aimed at young researchers working on fiber-based functional materials in any concurrent application area. The exposure of young scientists to open access articles in the selected area will provide new insights for future research and innovation.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Textiles is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
