Textiles: A Handbook for Designers
Textiles: A Handbook for Designers is a thorough study of the textile industry and the design processes and techniques used by professionals. With an overview of the textile industry and a thorough explanation of the designer's role, the text encourages adaptation of any design expertise into the processes, techniques, and formats characteristic of the textile industry.
Textiles is a compilation of information obtained from many different designers. Because each designer may work for years within only one segment of the market, this comprehensive view of studio practices throughout the industry should be meaningful even to practicing professionals. An indispensable reference work for artists who aspire to work with textile design as well as for professionals in the textile industry and related fields of interior and apparel design, the revised edition of Textiles covers the most recent developments as well as traditional practices.
