Using simple, direct language, Swatch Reference Guide for Fashion Fabrics, 2nd Edition is an all-in-one text and swatch book intended for both students of textile science and for anyone in the fashion industry: product developers, stylists, buyers, designers, and more. One of the essential components of the swatch book is the presentation of fabric samples and all pertinent information regarding fabric identification on the same page.

Preprinted mounting boards for each fabric sample include: Fabric Name, Fiber Content, Yarn Construction, Count, Coloration, Finishes, Weight, and List of Characteristics. End of chapter activities help readers organize and classify information--plus an included pick glass lets users examine and magnify fabrics. Through the text and swatches, readers will learn the inherent performance properties and construction of fibers and yarns. This invaluable reference brings together a wide variety of information into one volume, enabling users to spend less time trying to connect the dots and more time applying the concepts.

Review:

A quality reference style text with an excellent and diverse range of fabric swatches. With an underpinning of textile technology and in a format which explains fundamental fabric characteristics, the reference file book imparts all the necessary detail for students to learn the construction, analysis, properties and functionality of each swatch in one short descriptive summary ... It is an essential text for any textile or fashion undergraduate who needs to understand the construction and properties of commercial fabric types; be it in their own design work, or with a view to a career in commercial design as a buyer or range developer ... I am an undergraduate tutor who teaches this subject regularly and it is an excellent resource that can then be built upon by students to create their own archive file of commercial fabrics. I would recommend this book is produced for interior and technical textile swatches also. Highly recommended. -- Julie Brennan, University of Ulster Belfast, UK
