This book is taken from a series about different fabrics and the items of clothing these materials are used for. The materials include both synthetic and natural fibres. Each book is divided into different spreads exploring stage by stage where materials come from and how clothes are actually made. Every spread is illustrated by specially commissioned photographs showing the materials in their raw stage through to the finished articles, worn by children from the reader's own age-group. The book include some simple tests and games which show us what our own clothes are made of. With its simple text and informative photographs, this book follows the process of how a pair of children's leather shoes are made. Begining with a look at the various animals which give us leather, the book shows how the leather is then cleaned and dyed and sent to the shoe factory. Here the shoes are designed, the leather cut out and then stitched together to form the finished articles. It includes some easy tests that the young reader can try to see whether his or her own shoes are made from leather. The author has also written five book in Wayland's "The Senses" series.
