Synopsis

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.
