Useful for textile students and industry professionals alike, this one-of-a-kind book outlines the factors associated with building the cost of textiles from fibers through finished fabrics. By creating the architecture for understanding how decisions made throughout the transformation or converting processes affect cost, this book gives students and industry personnel the tools to make wise, profitable choices.
Though not a retail math text, this book contributes significantly to the understanding of what builds the most important cost of a garment or textile-based product: the fabric from which it is made. In so doing, it aids textile development and manufacturing personnel, buyers, and sourcing personnel in their decisions on how to manage the cost of a yarn, fabric, garment or finished product by making wise decisions about fabric specifications.
Graphics, tables, study questions, and a detailed glossary facilitate comprehension and learning.
This book will aid anyone studying or working in textiles and textile-related products in making wise and profitable business decisions about fabric specifications and cost.
