'This updated version of the bestselling Fabric for Fashion: The Swatch Book, includes additional swatches, new close-up photography to show fabrication, yarn windings as well as finished fabric swatches and more! 

This unique resource with 142 swatches and yarns of the most recognized and widely used varieties of fabric encourages consideration of not just fabric’s aesthetic appeal but also their structure, feel and weight.

With accompanying information on fabrication, weights, and construction, this  book will help student fashion designers to make informed textile choices based upon an understanding of raw materials together with the processes that make up a fabric.
