I have always liked the loose-leaf format. It is easier to read and highlight, stays open when used as a reference, and occasionally I've asked student to bring just one chapter to class with them. The images are outstanding-fresh, in color, and stylish. It is hard to make textiles sexy, but the front matter to each chapter reminds us that textiles are the basis of fashion. -- Sandra Lee Evenson, University of Idaho, USA The text has clear terms, in-depth information, supporting pictures and easy read. -- Usha Chowdhary, Central Michigan University, USA Each chapter has good topic. All the chapters make a complete introduction to textiles. Good figures and illustrations are used. The binder format is excellent! -- Vivian Li, Colorado State University, USA The strengths of the text are that it covers everything in relation to the study of textiles... The table of contents is very well presented and it provides ease of navigation in the loose-leaf style textbook. I find a seamless synergy between booth the text and kit. Students have easy accessibility while reading about the topics and making the connections to the actual fabrics. The synergy reinforces their learning of the content. -- Nancy Miller, LIM College, USA A very good overview, and introduction to the textile industry; from fibre/yarn to product and other supply chain information. -- Lindsey Waterton-Taylor, University of Manchester, UKVom Verlag:
