9780713472356: Textiles: Properties and Behaviour in Clothing Use

This book has been specially prepared for those who are concerned with the use of fabrics in clothing. Sufficient technical explanation of the processes of manufacture is provided to enable the reader to understand why fabrics differ in appearance, in texture and in properties. In this way, the relationship between fibres, yarns and fabrics, processing techniques and their ultimate behaviour when finally converted into fabrics is clearly shown and illustrated. The author has provided an appreciation of fabric qualities that should be useful to anyone concerned with making clothes, from samples to bulk production in a commercial and, particularly, in a fashion context. Two further considerations - appropriateness and durability - complete a survey that brings out the essential qualities in the wide range of fabrics - natural and man-made that are available nowadays.
