Textile technology, textile science and textile engineering had come a long way from the dungeons of the ancient weavers. Now, with its own chemical and physical intonations, textiles have myriads of shades--not even dreamed of in the previous times. Similarly, there are numerous and mutually non-conforming methods as well as processes of production, finishing and presentation. And above all, there is discernible shift from natural woolen and cottong fibers to synthetic ones.
The process of change being very fast, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of the old and new processes and the terms and words in vogue at different points of time Again, ultra-mechanization and sophistication has changed the system to the limits of unrecognisance. This volume-- A Dictionary of Textile Technology-- is prepared with idea of keeping these terms allot so that anyone in need can catch the one with ease. It is hoped that it will serve as a reference book to the students, teachers and masters of the subject.
