FabricBook - 2002
Fabric trends, choice and compulsion; This innovative guide takes an unprecedented look at the nature of fabric. Encapsulating the latest trends in pattern, texture and colour, and exploring the distinctive properties of traditional and modern manufacturing techniques, creative inspiration is drawn from up-and-coming contemporary designers as well as established companies. Main chapters look at the traditional fabric types of wool, silk, cotton, linen, and rayon and viscose. Another section on synthetic fabrics features natural fibres mixed with combinations of polyester, rayon, nylon, and polyamides. Each section looks at the development of the fibre and then reviews its contemporary variations. Design profiles focus on four internationally established designers showcasing the individual qualities of their yarn, construction, colour ranges and textures, providing an inviting palette of ideas for interpreting fabric.
