This fundamental resource for all textile and fashion designers explores over 70 production techniques and over 60 materials used in textile and fashion design.
Organized into four main parts - Fibre and Yarn Technology, Textile Technology, Construction Technology, and Materials - it is a complete overview of the life cycle of textile and fashion manufacturing, from the spinning of yarn to recycling. In parts 1-3, over 70 major processes are explained in detail, each featuring a technical description, an analysis of the applications, design opportunities and considerations, quality, cost, speed and environmental impact.
All of the processes feature detailed step-by-step case studies showing the process either at source or `in manufacture' at a leading international supplier. Part 4 features essential knowledge on over 60 natural and synthetic materials.
