    A ground-breaking study of feltmaking traditions across the world, with particular emphasis on the felt of Central Asian nomads.

    Believed to be one of the earliest textiles, felt has been made by the nomadic peoples of Central Asia for over 2,500 years and the craft still thrives today as an integral part of their culture. This book looks in particular detail at the Turkic and Mongol traditions, which include felt from Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Xinjiang and from Mongolia, Tibet, Bhutan and South-East Asia.

    Illustrated with spectacular textiles from museums around the world, as well as field photographs, archival material and details of motifs, this book provides a unique insight into nomadic life; an inspirational source of designs for textile specialists.
