About this title

Synopsis:

World Textiles is 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.
Eight sections cover every aspect of materials and techniques, each giving a succinct summary of characteristics, making, and geographical distribution, accompanied by hundreds of color illustrations and drawings. Non-loom and loom-woven textiles, painted and printed, dyed, sewn, embroidered, and embellished techniques are all covered, as well as the materials themselves.

About the Author:

John Gillow has spent over three decades studying, collecting, and lecturing on textiles. His other books include Textiles of the Islamic World and Indian Textiles.
