Fabrics and fabric selection have become more exciting and more complex with the new developments in fibers, finishes, construction, not to mention green options. We’ll detail the process of creating modern textiles through manufacture to end use. By exploring the various materials coming to market; comparing and contrasting their characteristics and properties and evaluating their performance and applications, more appropriate fabric specifications can be made for use in interiors and office environments. A discussion of textiles’ role in green design and sustainability including current manufacturing practices, identification and rating systems will supply the textile tools for making better informed decisions and wiser choices for more appropriate products and healthier lives. We’ll contextualize the knowledge and illustrate relevance through real world application examples.
