The bold and dizzying complementary color patterns that dominated 1970s fabric designs were made of materials in two general groups: the naturals and the synthetics. This book concentrates on the natural materials and presents a sampling of silks, cotton, flax, and wool. The prints include solids, stripes, plaids, geometrics, florals, paisleys, providing a visual record of the fashions and fabric trends that shaped the decade. This book is a delight for historians, designers, and all with an eye for fashion, fabrics, and fun. Glossary, index, bibliography, and informative captions included.
