The primary structures of fabrics by Irene Emery( Book )

8 editions published between 1966 and 1994 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The descriptive classification of fabric structures presented here is based on a long and wide-ranging study of representative fabrics from ancient and primitive cultures, and of the methods and terminology employed in analyzing, describing, and classifying them. After a number of years of collecting and attempting to collate available data, the bewildering inconsistencies and incongruities encountered in museum records and labels, and in published descriptions and discussions, led me to undertake a detailed and systematic investigation of the essential characteristics of ancient and primitive fabrics and the problems involved in acquiring, recording, and transmitting information about them. - Foreword

[Al-Maghrib al-Aqṣá] = From the Far West : carpets and textiles of Morocco = De l'extrême occident : tapis et textiles du Maroc by Patricia L Fiske( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moroccan pile and flatwoven rugs display a great variety of patterns and structures and dazzle the eye with their vivid colors. This publication is the first comprehensive work on the subject of Moroccan rugs in over half a century. Although great interest has long been shown in oriental carpets from the Middle East and China, relatively little study has been made until recently of the equally vigorous weaving traditions of Morocco. Five essays provide the reader with background on the history and culture of the country, placing the weavings in context, and represent the results of recent scholarly study. In the catalogue section, more than 90 examples of every known type of pile and flatwoven rug are illustrated and described. Rugs woven by the Berber tribes of the Middle Atlas and High Atlas Mountains and those made by rural Arab groups are shown, as well as examples of the urban carpets from Rabat and Mediouna
