Packaging textiles include industrial textiles, agricultural and other products. Since the demand for packaging materials is both national and international production and distribution of products, economic growth is directly proportional to industrial production and trade. The increasing need for reusable packaging and boxes creates new opportunities in the market for textile products.
Traditional bags made of jute, cotton or natural fibers, increasingly being produced from modern synthetic fibers. These technical textiles used in packaging and subsequent transportation processes are called "Packtech".
It is well known that most of these packagings are ideal for the type of packaging. It includes high-weight and densely woven fabrics on the one hand, and low-weight nonwovens on the other.
