donation


Thanks for the donation to the dictionaries and graphic library.

The dictionary includes nearly 1000 terms and the visual library more than 200 illustrated diagrams in large size. Every term and illustration take time besides my regular work. Unfortunately, servers, domains plugins, and storage have a cost that needs to be covered. Please use illustrations freely as I have made them to inform consumers about the importance of sustainability in the textile Industry. If you find it useful and use my services, I would be very happy if a small donation could be given. This will help cover the expenses so it can be developed further and remain free for all. In advance thanks!
