You can find several textile book choices at the Fashiondex website. The Fashiondex, Apparel Industry Publishers, was started in 1992 by a fashion designer who had arranged her Rolodex into types of fabrics and trims, instead of from A to Z. When she noticed that everyone where she worked was using her Rolodex when they needed to do their research and sourcing needs, she saw there was a need for a similar product. Fashiondex was formed, that
Rolodex was reproduced in book form, and several months later the first Fashiondex was produced. They started selling that directory and eventually created and published many other books that their designer, and her industry friends, thought were needed to make their jobs easier. In 1994, they launched www.fashiondex.com, the first fashion-sourcing website and store.

This wide-ranging and informative book conveys the excitement and new challenges textiles represent and is essential reading for anyone working with, studying or simply interested in textiles. Palgrave Macmillan was formed when St. Martin's Press Scholarly and Reference and Macmillan Press (UK) united their worldwide publishing operations. The history of the company, located in the historic Flatiron Building in New York City, begins with the founding of its parent company, Macmillan Publishers Limited, in England, by Daniel and Alexander Macmillan in 1843. Macmillan opened an office in New York in the late 1860s, that was later sold becoming what is now Macmillan USA. After the sale, Macmillan realized the importance of having a publishing arm in the United States. In 1952 St. Martin's Press was formed, named after the street that housed the Macmillan headquarters in London. St. Martin's Press is one of the ten largest general publishers in the United States and is an important publisher of college, trade, mass market, and scholarly titles.
