A mine of information for students and anyone interested in textiles, the book opens with an expert guide to nine fundamental textile techniques, from rug weaving and tapestry to felt and bark cloth. Each is clearly explained, using line drawings and close-up colour details from actual textiles. This shows how many different people from many different traditions have made and decorated cloth through the centuries. From pre-history to the present day, the rich collection of illustrations - drawn from major collecions all over the world - including costumes, period interiors, archive photographs and a huge variety of fabrics.
