This book is a small step in the direction of giving an Indian perspective in understanding the world of fabrics by explaining the factors that contribute to the aesthetics as well as performance of a textile product.

Organised in six parts, this book adopts a systematic approach in defining and exploring the concepts of fabric science. Part I (Fundamentals) discusses the history, composition, classification and properties of textile fibres. Part II (Fibre) focuses on the typical traits of the fibre family. Part III (Yarns) deals with yarn production and its properties. Part IV (Fabrics) covers weaving, knitting and other miscellaneous methods of fabric construction along with the emphasis on the type of fibres used in each case. Part V (Finishing) highlights the colouration and functional finishes of any fabric. Part VI (Consumer Concerns) is aimed at enhancing consumer satisfaction by generating awareness among consumers.
