The song of the loom : new traditions in Navajo weaving by Frederick J Dockstader( Book )

The primary structures of fabrics : an illustrated classification by Irene Emery( Book )

7 editions published between 1966 and 1994 in English and held by 666 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

The Ottoman Empire spanned seven centuries and preceded modern Turkey. At its height the Empire extended over three continents. Ottoman art, including embroidered textiles, reflects both the abundance and wealth of the Empire. Embroidery was practiced by much of the population. Textiles were an integral part of daily life. Produced for both household functions and as garments these textiles took on luxurious appeal through the unique designs created with shimmering silk and glistening metallic embroidery. Presented as embodiments of Ottoman aesthetic, these textiles are a point of departure for an exploration of the rich Ottoman culture that produced them

Hidden threads of Peru : Q'ero textiles by Ann Pollard Rowe( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Q'ero is an isolated indigenous community on the eastern slope of the Andes. In this harsh environment, a rich and complex textile tradition has endured from pre-Hispanic times. Woven from the hair of local alpacas, the colorful shawls, ponchos, bags, and other textiles produced are worn daily and form part of the rituals and ceremonies of Q'ero. Hidden Threads of Peru combines ethnography, anecdote, and textile art to offer fascinating new insights into a culture that can trace its traditions back to the Inca empire. The Q'ero people themselves discuss the significance of the fabrics they make and the nature of their Andean life, while photographs taken from the early twentieth century to the present day illustrate their daily life and rituals, as well as -- in sumptuous full color -- the textiles themselves, revealing the evolution and range of patterns over a one-hundred-year period

For more than one hundred years, the kimono has been a motif in American art and popular culture. The Kimono Inspiration -- originally published as the catalog for the exhibition at the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C. -- explores the use and meaning of the kimono in America and traces the transformation of this quintessential Japanese garment from its ethnic origins, through its many appearances in fine art, costume, and high fashion, to its role in the contemporary art-to-wear movement

[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 )

8 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 213 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
