The Trautman Garment Engineering Library

Welcome to the Library

You are about to gain exclusive access to a comprehensive collection of over 500 volumes of print resources and tools dating back to the 19th century all the way up to present day.

This is my personal Library, which is the result of years of painstaking study and compilation, and it is now easily available to you at the click of a mouse.

Inside the Library you will discover my own collection of books, DVDs, videos, and patterns. It’s the culmination of decades of my work in the industry.

These publications were instrumental in developing my knowledge base and building up my level of expertise to what it is today. I’m certain that they will do the same for you.

You’ll be able to search using specific filters and parameters based on your unique needs.

If you have any questions about any of the resources just send an email to and I’ll be happy to help.

In the spirit of full disclosure, many of the resources will have affiliate links that will take you to websites where you can purchase your own copies and I will receive a modest commission.
