Excerpts

Excerpts

"Fabric Glossary offers a unique dual aid for anyone studying, working with, or interested in textiles. It is a fabric dictionary, covering some 600 textile terms, to address the most-frequently asked question, "What is it called?" It distinguishes fabrics, one from another, by name, construction details, and origin, all visually enhanced with clear photos. Many of these show the fabric "dissected" to reveal significant or essential aspects of structure. At the same time, it serves as a swatch book, allowing for the mounting of actual samples of fabric, which are the best possible illustrations of any individual material."--BOOK JACKET.
