A conductive textile was fabricated by vacuum-filtration using conductive ink prepared from multi-walled carbon nanotubes. The fabricated conductive textile was evaluated as its resistance varied while it was subjected to repeat stretching at strain rates of 0% to 20%. The textile samples showed resistance variations of less than ±3% after 10,000 cycles of stretching, and the pulse of the resistance variation at a strain rate of 0%–20% remained uniform during the stretching cycles. A motion-sensing glove fabricated with the conductive textile showed that the pulse of the oscilloscope changed accurately with movements of the fingers. These results show that the conductive textile prepared in this study can be applied to motion-sensing products.
