When we talk about textiles, we’re talking about fabrics. That’s what textiles are: fabrics and cloths made from wearable fibers. Our lives are full of textiles. We wear them as clothing, use them for bedding, wrap ourselves in them to stay warm, decorate our houses with them and use them to grow corn. Wait, what?
There are more uses to textiles than meet the eye. Textiles are also a big part of agriculture and ecosystem management. Specifically, we use permeable fabrics called geotextiles to help control erosion and maintain soil stability. It’s a textile worn not by us but by the earth. Turns out, Mother Nature likes a good textile as much as we do.
Use of GEO-TEX FABRIC:
Geotextiles are fabrics applied to the soil, but why? These aren’t your average picnic blankets, after all. A geotextile is designed with the specific intent of improving or managing the soil, generally for conservation or agricultural purposes. There’s actually an ancient tradition here; ancient Egyptians mixed natural plant fibers into the soil in order to strengthen it. Since the 1950s, we’ve used synthetic polymers to create modern geotextiles.
Let’s think about some of the situations in which geotextiles would be needed. Imagine being a rancher who is raising cattle. When you introduce livestock to an ecosystem, the hooves can trample and kill off the grass. Without plants, there are no roots to hold the soil together, and the land begins to erode. Geotextiles help hold the ground together, acting almost like synthetic roots while providing a stable base for new plant life to grow on. Geotextiles are used on ranches and farms, as well as eroding river systems, hillsides with homes and businesses, or any other place where soils need a little stabilization.
