    My only advice would be to use solid chintz sparingly. His use of gutsy, colorful glazed cotton made chintz hip and sexy. After reviewing it, I went back to my library and browsed through some of the Hicks books. Together with a glossary, bibliography and guide to textile collections around the world, this comprehensive survey provides a wealth of information and will be invaluable to anyone interested in the rich art of textiles, costume or craft.

    Cheap chintz looks, well, cheap. From the Publisher. More than colour illustrations demonstrate the beauty and ingenuity of the latest advanced textiles and their exciting applications, which impact on all aspects of our lives. By directly connecting recently found textile artifacts to specific references in China's vast historical literature, they illuminate the evolution of silk making and the driving social forces that have inspired the creation of innovative textiles through the millennia.

    The pioneering use of new materials and a commitment to innovative design have remained Knoll's hallmarks to the present day. He used glazed cotton fabric for pillows, bedspreads, curtains, and all kinds of upholstery. Many designers are now integrating hi-tech fabrics, such as protective and impact-resistant textiles, or cellulose fabrics, with groundbreaking results. Can't you see fabric like this used for some glam curtains in one's bedroom? Hicks was at the top of his game about the same time that Pierre Cardin had become so famous, initially as a fashion designer [men and women], and went on to have his logo emblazoned on a huge range of consumer products.
