A complete guide to the whole range of traditional handmade textiles from all corners of the globe.

The history of the world can be read in textiles: the rise of civilizations and the fall of empires are woven into their warp and weft along with the great stories of conquest, religion, and trade. The legacy of textile design, form, and pattern that has resulted from this global endowment can be seen here in all its spectacular richness. Eight sections cover every aspect of materials and techniques, each giving a succinct summary of characteristics, production, and geographical distribution, accompanied by hundreds of color illustrations and drawings. Nonloom and loom-woven textiles, painted and printed, dyed, sewn, embroidered, and embellished techniques are all covered, as well as the materials themselves. From simplethe clothes made of skin or hide in prehistoric timesto complexmaterials elaborately embellished with tasselsworld textiles are both beautiful and beguiling. This unrivaled guide is completed by a glossary, further reading, and information on collections open to the public. 778 illustrations, 551 in color. 778 illustrations, 551 in color

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. All textiles epitomize the cultures that make them, from the silk brocade saris of India to North American patchwork quilts. Interestingly, societies separated by vast distances have developed similar solutions to design and construction while producing a dazzling diversity of styles. This is the first book to illustrate (in nearly 800 sumptuous colour photographs and drawings) the whole range of traditional handmade textiles from all over the globe, classified by materials and technique rather than age or country. Eight sections cover all aspects of production, each giving a summary of characteristics, making and geographical distribution. Every kind of textile is covered: non-loom and loom-woven, painted and printed, dyed, sewn, embroidered and embellished. Completed by a glossary, further reading and information on collections with public access, this is an unrivalled guide for anyone interested in collecting or making and designing textiles.
