Threads Around the World – From Arabian Weaving to Batik in Zimbabwe

Deborah Brandon
Schiffer Publishing Ltd

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 the pages to see how today’s artisans continue to create traditional fiber arts with age-old methods. Blending well-researched information, engaging style, and inspiration, Brandon shares fascinating stories about region-specific crafts – for example, espadrilles, flatwoven rugs, mittens, voudou flags, mirror embroidery – and the histories they hold. This open-eyed approach offers new ideas for textile devotees and for anyone who’s interested in heritage crafts and cultures.
