This work illustrates the whole range of traditional handmade textiles from all corners of the globe. Eight sections cover every aspect of materials and techniques, each giving a succinct summary of characteristics, making and geographical distribution, accompanied by hundreds of colour illustrations and drawings. Non-loom and loom-woven textiles, painted and printed, dyed, sewn, embroidered and embellished techniques are all covered, as well as the materials themselves.
