This easily navigable resource provides 100 swatches of most recognized and widely used varieties of fabric, including cottons, silks, wools, and linens, to encourage consideration of not just the aesthetic appeal of various fabrics but also their structure, feel, and weight. Secured in an attractive ring-bound folder, with descriptions alongside them, the fabrics are in their raw state, before bleaching, dying, or finishing, so that their properties can be observed without thedistraction of color or pattern.
