Throughout 2014, this edition, originally published in 2002, will be updated and added to, ensuring it remains the priority place to find the answer to any question related to terms and definitions throughout the textile supply chain. The current online version includes around 4,000 terms, fundamental textile knowledge is presented simply and effectively for both the student and the professional.
