Abstract

This easily navigable resource provides over 100 swatches of the most recognised and widely used varieties of fabric, including cottons, silks, wools and linens, to encourage consideration of not just the aesthetic appeal of various fabrics but also their structure, feel and weight. Bound into a hardcover book, with descriptions and contextual illustrations alongside them, the fabrics are in their raw state, before bleaching, dying or finishing, so that their properties can be observed without the distraction of colour or pattern.

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. A useful glossary defines key terminology. The book will be useful for anyone who works with fabrics and is the ideal companion to the Fabric for Fashion book.
