Clothing and textile topics include Indian clothing habits, development of creative ability, and sociological factors of fashion diffusion. Studies in consumer and family economics considered furnishing and family use of living rooms, differences in the economic behavior of families, and the home economist's contribution to improvement of the living standards of low-income families.
