Use spunbonded fabrics to create stunning effects that cannot be achieved with any other manmade or natural fibres. Covers a range of exciting fabrics, from Tyvek to Lutradur, plus new fabrics such as Evolon and heat-distressable tissue. Fabrics can be washed, dyed, painted, printed, stitched, burned, fused, foiled, stencilled and slashed to create beautiful and innovative effects. Lutradur and Evolon belong to a category of manmade fabrics called spunbonded textiles. They have been available for a few years, but the explosion of their use in the textile world is very recent. They are spunbound, non-woven polyesters, which are very strong and flexible, but soft to the touch and ideal for textile art. All the different types of spunbonded textiles are covered including Lutradur, Evolon, heat-distressable tissue and some older textiles in this category, such as Tyvek, nappy (diaper) liner and kunin felt. The author introduces a range of simple colouring techniques, from painting and printing to dyeing. The book then guides you through heat-distressing, fusing and soldering techniques for which these spunbonded textiles are perfect. The other popular technique – image transfer – is also made simple with these manmade fabrics. Other techniques explained, step-by-step, include foiling and stamping. An essential book for all textile artists who want new and exciting ideas on how to use these versatile textiles.

The ability of a fabric to resist wear is an essential aspect of its performance. Understanding and improving the durability of textiles provides a comprehensive guide to the factors affecting the durability of a range of different textiles. Part one addresses the different factors that affect textile durability, including the influence of fabric construction and fibre type, as well as properties affecting strength and dimensional stability. Colour fastness and the effects of light are discussed, along with methods for testing and improving wrinkle-resistance and textile durability. Part two goes on to explore the durability of particular types of textile including antimicrobial textiles, protective clothing, historic textiles, silk and geotextiles. With its distinguished editor and international team of expert contributors, Understanding and improving the durability of textiles is an indispensable book for textile scientists, technologists, engineers and those designing, testing and manufacturing textiles. It also provides a comprehensive guide to textile durability for researchers and academics of all levels in this sector.

Inkjet printing on fabric is a highly popular technique, due not least to the accessibility of the basic materials: desktop PCs and printers. There is strong interest from both textile artists and creative quilters, but the technical equipment can be an obstacle for many practitioners who have little or no IT skills. Inkjet Printing on Fabric will address these issues, and will guide textile practitioners to become confident textile printers, teaching them how to use their IT equipment as a printing tool as well as a design tool. Much of the work featured in this book requires no in-depth specialist skills and highlights taking an experimental approach to using desktop technology, including step-by-step digital imaging techniques, and a demonstration of the use of specialist printing papers and mediums. Embracing technology in textile practice gives endless possibilities for developing new working methods and adapting traditional techniques. Inkjet Printing on Fabric brings these possibilities within the grasp of those with little or no specialist print studio facilities, and means that techniques that were once the domain of professional artists are now accessible to everyone.
