9780500288030: Textiles Today: A Global Survey of Trends and Traditions

This survey brings together a wide range of images and perspectives.

Extraordinary technological developments, from color-changing, light-sensitive camouflage to emergency shelters of cement-impregnated fabric bonded to an inflatable plastic, are included here alongside the simply beautiful, such as Eley Kishimoto’s patterns that point to the historical exchange of ideas between East and West. 381 color illustrations

About the Author:

A former design consultant, ChloŽ Colchester received a doctorate in anthropology. She lives in England.

From Booklist:

The author discovers fibers with amazing qualities—Morphotext, for instance, which mimics the arrangement of layers of cuticle on a butterfly’s wings. Or the hitherto-nonpublic New England–based Future Force Warrior Program, which experiments with fabrics to enhance solders’ physical capacities. Objects play a supporting role in this textile transformation, with world-renowned architects and designers (such as Issey Miyake) contributing items like knotted chairs, solar-powered fabric lights, and a Beijing Olympics swimming pool fabricated of ETFE foils. The list of jaw-dropping soft inventions goes on and on: wallpaper patterns driven by digital technology, public knitting events, and African quilts. --Barbara Jacobs
