World Textiles by Mary Schoeser

Book Description

Written as a chronological survey spanning prehistory to the early 21st century, this book is organized around five themes - materials, methods, trade, technology and social structures - which allow textiles from all ages to be investigated from many angles: how they are made, what they are made from, how they function in society, the ways in which they are valued and given meaning, and the messages they contain. This approach shows the intricate relationships between different cultures' textile traditions, and above all demonstrates the awesome significance and the history of the materials that we all take for granted in our everyday lives.
