Prepare for a Career in TEXTILES with Confidence!

 

The field of textiles is changing rapidly. In her newest edition of Textiles, Sara Kadolph has made significant updates to reflect and discuss technological changes and environmental concerns in order to prepare students for careers in apparel and textiles. Chapters are organized to follow the order in which textiles are addressed in the industry, beginning with coverage of fibers and following with sections on yarns, fabric construction, fabric finishes, and coloration methods, as well as a new section on knits.

  • A discussion of sustainability issues as they apply to textiles
  • Increased coverage of the globalization of the textiles industry
  • A new pedagogical feature to highlight key content for students: Textile Timeout
  • Section review questions have been added to help students summarize the section material
  • Several Learning Activities per chapter apply directly to the accompanying swatch kit
  • End-of-chapter references have been added and expanded
  • End-of-chapter review questions have been revised to provide an increasing level of rigor for students
  • New appendix material
    • A world map to help student identify the global nature of the textile complex
