This review is dedicated to the area of renewable polymeric matrices, a topic in which the editors aims at conducting, developing, and forming a research-innovation direction for the doctoral studies school. There are two directions envisaging (a) the synthesis of cellulose-derived materials and (b) their application as novel clothing wear materials as an alternative to standard one. The evolution plans aspire to encourage theme-based cooperation between academic environment and industrial media. Thus, the intention is to work on new product development and formulation in a program with strong industry engagement. Specifically, the proposed review will focus closely on applied research and the expansion of the transfer of technology and knowledge in the clothing industries and beyond. Subsequently we propose an interdisciplinary research and development program for material sciences and technology development, meaning, development of new improved ecological comfort performance materials.
