Encompassing the enormous range of traditional, hand-crafted textiles from every region of Africa, this illustrated volume explores the materials, dyes, decorations and techniques of the people who create them. Five sections cover the major geographical areas and examine the materials, dyes, decorations and techniques that characterize them. John Gillow has conducted first-hand research across the continent, recording everything from the simplest items designed for everyday use to sumptuous garments required for major life events, such as births and funerals, marriages and coming-of-age ceremonies.
