Must-have for Textile students, 8 July 2010
I am about to study textile design and bought this book on basis of other reviews. It provides a good overview of the industry, the key issues - globalisation, environmental impact of the industry etc - and how it is changing. There are lots of references to industry organisations throughout the book that are very helpful, although a few no longer exist. The book was only published a few years ago but already seems due for an update. It's a great introduction to the textile industry.
