What would we be without fibers and fabrics? Cold, among other things. But as basic to life as textiles are, they also make up a complex industry with an equally complex role in the global economy. This three-part series guides viewers through the fascinating world of textile production, from the cultivation of wool, cotton, and other substances to social issues associated with cloth manufacturing. Students will discover the basic raw ingredients of woven and knitted fabrics, technical discussions of how they are handled and processed, and labor and ecological issues directly related to textile design, fabrication, and commerce. Viewable/printable instructor’s guides are available online. Set of 3 DVDs.
