The city of Norwich, a major textile centre in the 18th century, led the way in the manufacture of shawls based on traditional Indian styles and designs. The first major work to be published on the Norwich shawl, (which was in fashion for nearly a century) and its manufacture, this book includes extensive background information, placing the garment in the context of contemporary fashion design and the history of the textile industry. For the first time, the collection of Norwich shawls housed at Strangers Hall Museum has been made available for public viewing at 'Style and Splendour', The Norwich Shawl Industry 1785-1885 exhibition at the Norwich Castle Museum, 16 September - 26 November 1995.
