9780131187696: Textiles (10th Edition)

This popular book, now in its 10th edition, considers textiles as the materials used to create apparel, furnishings, and industrial products. It approaches textiles from a product analysis approach, using professional terminology, and provides examples to illustrate key concepts. 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.

From the Publisher:

Chapters are organized to follow the order in which textiles are addressed in the industry, beginning with coverage of fibers, and following with sections on yarns, fabric construction, and fabric finishes. Material includes traditional background information, an overview of the historical development of the textile industry, discussion of production processes, and major uses for each fiber, plus a review of new developments in the field. Equal attention is paid to both apparel and furnishings textiles, with the focus on helping students develop an understanding of how performance and characteristics are engineered to provide serviceable textile products.
