It is intended as a reference document for fiber and textile technologists concerned with this problem.
This thesaurus provides an indispensable tool in the area of textile information storage and retrieval. At present there is no comparable reference work in the field. It contains terms relating to all segments of the textile industrial complex from fiber producer to machinery maker to consumer goods testing laboratories, and is intended to provide a controlled vocabulary for all textile terms from the chemical stage to the marketing end.
