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.
The changed in format from print to digital, allows for faster delivery, instant access and a portable resource for everyone involved in the wider textile industry, from students and academics through fibre suppliers, to retailers, lawyers, and customs and excise professionals.

Covering every sector of textiles from fibres to the finished product, during 2014 new subject areas will be added including sustainability, design, smart wearables and nano-technology.
