Contemporary techniques of fabric decoration embrace skills handed down through many generations in many cultures. Communication of skills between countries has historically been greater than we may imagine and is continuing to create a rich variety of styles. This book explores five main areas of interest: embroidery; applique and reverse applique; tie and dye in its various forms; batik and other wax resist techniques; decorative techniques reminiscent of the European nineteenth century and seen in the Asian dress of today. Each chapter surveys the textile traditions of many cultures, describes basic materials and techniques and suggests projects ranging from cushion covers and wall hangings to clothing and kites.
