India is a country of cotton and chintz its mysticism enhanced into lavish exotic textile crafts. A textile is a flexible material comprised of a network of natural or artificial fibres often referred to as thread or yarn. Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, or pressing fibres together. The production of textiles is an important craft, whose speed and scale of production has been altered almost beyond recognition by industrialization and the introduction of modern manufacturing techniques. However, for the main types of textiles, plain weave, twill or satin weave there is little difference between the ancient and modern methods. This book follows the creative process of designing and printing textile patterns, from the initial sourcing of ideas to the final high quality creation. It provides ideas and practical information at a level easily accessible to textile students and designers, but also to novices who would like to learn more. The contents are: • Textiles Designing: An Introduction • Structural Differentiation in Spinning • Structural Differentiation in Weaving • Dyeing and Decorating Textile • The Textile Designer • Textile Artist • Global Textile Traditions • Choice of Textile Technology • Struggle over Control of Textile Technology • Survival of Craft and Textile Control • Bibliography • Index"
