J.J. Pizzuto's Fabric Science Swatch Kit, 11th Edition reinforces the study of textiles for students in fashion design, merchandising, interior design, product development and home furnishings. The kit contains 114 (2"x 3") fabric samples, a fabric key, 40 special assignments, heavy-weight sample sheets to mount and analyze fabrics, and a pick glass - all contained in a three-ring binder. The swatches are organized in the order in which they are covered in the text: fibers, yarns, weaves, knits, dyeing, printing and finishes. Swatches represent the types of fabrics currently available to fashion and interior designers in the field, making this resource an excellent addition to any professional library.
~The text contains instructions and a new video tutorial that takes students through the process of assembling their swatch kit and using a pick glass.
~A Fabric Key identifies the swatches by number and fabric name, description and fiber content.
~Assignments are designed to reinforce the text and classroom lectures and have been developed by FIT instructors to broaden student's understanding of key concepts in textiles through hands-on labs and problem solving activities.
~Students will successfully develop keen observation, analysis and report writing skills.
~Fabric Science Swatch Kit is an ideal companion to Fabric Science, 11th Edition (ISBN 9781501395369) or can also be used alone or in conjunction with any textiles textbook.
