This paper presents a research focused on textile antennas which are made embroidered from a novel hybrid conductive sewing thread. Thanks to embroidery, which has been recognized as one of the most promising manufacturing techniques for integrating antennas into clothing, the antennas are more robust, more flexible, fully washable and comfortable for wearing.
