AbstractInnovation textile is a new and unusual product type combining information technologies with wide art opportunities. The article considers three types of innovation textiles selected using the functional purpose principle: materials radiating light (electrofluorescence, light emitting diodes, including organic and fibre optics), materials forming an image (LC screens, OLED, LCD) and materials with fluorescence effect. A new cloth type named electronic textiles is a material, which conducts and at the same time consumes electric energy. It combined three formerly independent spheres: textiles, electrical engineering and electronic engineering. Textile materials are the base, on which various electronic devices are mounted.
