Threads Around the World

From Arabian Weaving to Batik in Zimbabwe
Deb Brandon

Description

Handmade textiles are personal, no matter where in the world they’re created, and these photos and explanations of 25 diverse world cultures’ techniques vividly share the details. Take a voyage through these pages and see how today’s artisans continue to create traditional fibre arts with age-old methods.

Blending well-researched information, engaging style and inspiration, the pages explore espadrilles, flatwoven rugs, mittens, voudou flags, mirror embroidery and the histories they hold. This open-eyed approach will appeal to textile devotees, from the casually curious to professional artists, and to people who are interested in heritage crafts and diverse cultures.
