Description:      Weaved throughout the world, fabrics, textiles and clothes reflect the cultual richness, innovative artistry and creativity from different places. Handmade textiles are part of world heritage, and in an increasing world of technology they are a reminder of the finer items in our cultures.

Many cultures take great pride in their textile and fabrics industry, and for some countries, they are integral to their national economic output. Some fabrics cost millions of dollars, while others are very cheap, the price varies differently depending on a variety of factors.

There are so many different weaves in the world and too many for us to give you a complete global overview! But in this volume we hope to provide you with a snapshot. From China to Italy, USA to Scotland and Sri Lanka, we bring you insights into fabrics and textiles from around the world.

We hope you enjoy it!

Description:      Buku ini mengenai kreativiti dan inovasi amat penting dalam kehidupan kita di dunia ini. Mereka yang tidak kreatif dan inovatif akan menjadi mangsa kepada mereka yang kreatif. Untuk memastikan pembangunan negara yang mapan dengan kemajuan yang berterusan, agenda meningkatkan kreativiti dan inovasi melalui penggunaan sains dan teknologi, dengan penghayatan kepada nilai-nilai agama dan budaya yang terpuji mesti dibangunkan. Pembangunan daya kreativiti dan inovasi akan lebih banyak mendatangkan kemudaratan daripada kebaikan sekiranya kita tidak berusaha melahirkan insane yang bertanggungjawab dengan tuhannya berdasarkan ajaran agama dan budaya yang murni. Agama dan budaya mesti diusahakan agar ia memandu semua kegiatan yang bersifat kreatif dan inovatif, terutamanya dalam bidang sains dan teknologi.
