With beautiful photographs of the vibrantly coloured and patterned textiles themselves, vivid first-hand descriptions by travellers and merchants, historic images of people and places, related arts and ethnographic studies, this book is both an indispensable resource and a visual feast for all students and lovers of textiles.
