This popular book, now in its 10th edition, considers textiles as the materials used to create apparel, furnishings, and industrial products.

Flow charts on identifying fabric structure and naming fancy woven fabrics; other fabrication methods; and knits have been added. Also included are tables summarizing components such as fibers, yarns, fabric structure, and finishes. An expanded glossary makes it easier for readers to find pertinent information. For designers, technical designers, apparel engineers, and others in the fashion/apparel business.
