Description

For introductory courses in Textiles, courses in Fashion Design/Production, Fashion Merchandising, Visual Merchandising, Interior Design, and Costume Studies. Fabric Reference presents a complete and up-to-date source of the highly technical basics of textile science, from fibers to finished fabrics. Specially prepared graphics, illustrations, comparison tables, and flow charts make the process of creating modern fabrics clear to both students and instructors. Key terms (including trademarks) are emphasized, and practical applications such as care, selection for various uses, comfort in cold or hot weather, safety from UV radiation, and conservation topics are all discussed more fully than in other texts. A unique companion fabric dictionary/swatchbook (Fabric Glossary) is available.show more
