Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With an increased emphasis on textiles as a major global industry, the tenth edition of this best-selling book continues to meet the needs of both students and professionals in the textile, fashion, and related industries. Based on their combined experience in both education and the industry, Cohen and Johnson provide readers with a comprehensive text about the design, structure, and application of textiles. The range of information is exceptionally broad, and includes basic fiber makeup, fiber innovation, the formation of fabrics, quality issues, and laws that regulate textiles; updated topics include environmental responsibility, nanotechnology and innovations in industrial textiles. The authors also provide readers with information regarding textile-related trade and professional associations and career opportunities in design, production, marketing, merchandising, apparel and home products.
