Description

This easy-to-move resource provides over 125 staples of the most widely recognized and widely used fabrics, including natural fabrics such as cotton, silk, wool and bedding, as well as artificial and synthetic fabrics such as acetates, lyocells, nylons and metallics to encourage not just the aesthetic appeal of different substances, but also their structure, feel and weight. Bound in a hardcover book, with descriptions and contextual illustrations next to them, the fabrics are in the raw state, before bleaching, dying or finishing, so that their properties can be observed without disturbance of color or pattern.

With information on fibers, basic textile construction, weights, construction and tissue comparison, the book will help student fashion developers make informed textile choices based on understanding raw materials along with processes that make up a fabric. A useful glossary defines key terminology. The book will be useful to anyone who works with textiles and is the ideal companion to the fabric of the fashion book.
