Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This popular book, now in its 10th edition, considers textiles as the materials used to create apparel, furnishings, and industrial products. It approaches textiles from a product analysis approach, using professional terminology, and provides examples to illustrate key concepts. Flow charts on identifying fabric structure and naming fancy woven fabrics; other fabrication methods; and knits have been added. Also included are tables summarizing components such as fibers, yarns, fabric structure, and finishes. An expanded glossary makes it easier for readers to find pertinent information. For designers, technical designers, apparel engineers, and others in the fashion/apparel business.

Synopsis:

"Textiles," ninth edition, is designed to be a comprehensive text for the introductory textiles student with emphasis on the fundamental principles of serviceability of textiles and textile production. This new edition continues its clear and logical presentation of topics with the most up-to-date information accompanied by the extensive use of visuals.

Photographs and diagrams that help students understand and learn the information remain a major part of the book. Basic fibers, yarns, fabrics, and finishes continue to be the emphasis. A professional understanding and use of terms are major goals of this book and are achieved with an extensive glossary and index.

Major changes with the 9th edition include:

  • Flow charts for basic fabric structures, basic woven fabrics, fancy woven fabrics, knitted fabrics, other fabrications, and fabrics with aesthetic finishes.
  • Tables were combined to facilitate understanding and comparisons among fibers and fabrics.
  • Extensive discussions of elastoester, fluorpolymer, melamine, yak, cornstarch fiber (polylactide), and PBO.
  • Comprehensive information of production development and the role textile materials play in this process.
  • Care of textiles was expanded with the addition of home solvent cleaning, horizontal and vertical axis washing machines, ventless drying, alternates to dry cleaning, and new ingredients in detergents or compounds available for home use.
  • New finishes were added: bioscouring, ultraviolet absorbent, porosity control., vapor phase durable press finishes, and pilling resistant finishes.
