ABSTRACT
The article profiles three textile designers. Liora Manné began her career designing prints, knits, and woven for the apparel industry. Fabric designer Libby Kowalski has advanced weaving technologies into another realm through the development of new synthetic fiber, the transparent fabrics. Teresa Goins is one of the first to design for the latest in loom technology, a computer-interfaced jacquard loom that has the capability of weaving fabric without the usual requirement of a repeating design.
