Fabric colors, patterns, textures, and fibers reveal as much about a culture as do the furnishings and clothing that relied on the fabrics. In the 1960s, traditional plaids became popular at the same time as bold prints and geometrics, notably Op Art and "psychedelic" patterns. Nearly 600 close-up color photographs of 1960s fabrics with informative captions and index comprise this book for designers, historians, and students of fashion and textiles.
