Featuring the most current and high-quality fashion fabrics, Swatch Reference Guide for Fashion Fabrics, Fourth Edition, is an all-in-one text and swatch book focused on the needs of fashion students. The swatch book presents fabric samples with all pertinent information regarding fabric identification on the same page, including fabric name, fiber content, yarn construction, count, coloration, weight, uses, characteristics and similarities/differences between fabrics.
The kit includes 210 unique fabric samples not found in any other swatch kit, a 100+ page textbook with activities, Quick Reference Guide tables, pre-printed mounting boards for all swatches and a 6x metal pick glass--all held in a sturdy 3-ring binder. Through the text and assembly of the swatch kit, readers will learn the inherent performance properties and construction of fibers, yarns and fabrics, and most importantly, their end use in fashion. This invaluable reference brings together a wide variety of information into one volume, enabling users to spend less time trying to connect the dots and more time applying the concepts.
