Where Do Clothes Come from?

By Chris Butterworth

Illustrated by Lucia Gaggiotti

A lively look at materials and technological processes for young children, with stylish illustrations.

A lively look at materials and technological processes for young children, with stylish illustrations. The sequel to Lunchbox: The Story of Your Food looks at the processes involved in making the clothes we wear. It traces the journey of a bale of cotton from the field where it was harvested to the factories where it is cleaned, carded and combed, dyed, spun into thread, then woven into cloth and made into a pair of jeans. It also shows how wool is turned into a jumper, artificial fibres created for a football kit, a party dress made out of silk, plastic bottles recycled into a fleece, and how latex from rubber trees becomes a pair of wellies. This fascinating book on technological processes succeeds in being young, child-centred and friendly, but also packs in an enormous amount of information.
