Description

This easily navigable resource provides over 120 swatches of the most recognized and widely used varieties of fabric to encourage consideration of not just their aesthetic appeal but also their structure, feel and weight. Natural fabrics such as cottons, silks, wools and linens are included, as are artificial and synthetic fabrics like acetates, polyesters, polyamides, acrylics and soya fabrics, and fabrics made from alternative plant fibres. With information on fibres, basic construction of fabrics, weights, construction and weave comparison, the book will help student fashion designers to make informed textile choices based upon an understanding of raw materials together with the processes that make up a fabric. The book will be useful for anyone who works with fabrics and is the ideal companion to Fabric for Fashion: The Complete Guide.show more
