To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a designer and furniture store owner I finally broke down and bought this. It is a good reference but I was specifically looking for viscose and there is no listing! I am still guessing but it's considered nylon? Still in the dark!
A lot of work went obviously into this book: the graphic design is beautiful, the content is clearly and logically arranged and there's a lot of information on fibers, fabrics, leather and manufacturing processes. I work with fabrics, I know a lot about fabrics and still I found new things in this book. However, there are errors in this book that might be confusing for someone who doesn't know anything about fibers and fabrics: the book needs another round of proofreading. There's silvers instead of slivers, warp knitting confused with weft in chapter 4.2, yards with meters. In the chapter about leather, the pictures of calf and cattle are swapped and where should be a picture of lamb, there's a cow. It's a bit annoying, considering how much work was put into this book by the authors and the designers. That said, I like the book and I would recommend it to all textile enthusiasts.
Very good textile dictíonary. However, I thought there were real textile examples but they are all pictures. I also found a poor clasificación of patterns. In spite of that, it is a great textile dictionary.
