Biomimetics is a hybrid discipline that enables the transfer of technology from biological systems into the man-made world. Nature is regarded as a source of inspiration for solutions to problems encountered in various areas of engineering. Biomimetic technologies have already found commercial applications in the textile sector that reduce the cost of production to the environment. This chapter will discuss relevant aspects of biomimetic design and explore ideas that could enrich the design and development of smart protective textiles.
