This up-to-date book highlights advanced textiles in production and available to the designer, artist, architect, and consumer today.

It explores the exciting confluence of art, design, and technology: new textiles that shrink or expand to fit; fabrics developed from carbon, steel, glass, and ceramics; materials that protect the wearer from environmental extremes on earth and in space.

Featuring a wide selection of textiles at the cutting edge of technology, the book covers the field in three main sections:

Innovations: how the newest textiles are imagined and produced.

Applications: from fashion and design to architecture and art.

Reference: including a glossary, biographies, a bibliography, and directories of addresses and public collections.
