Book Description
This extraordinary private collection of traditional costumes, put together with taste and passion by an Italo-Turkish couple, will take us across Asia Minor, Central Asia, India, South East Asia, and the Far East: five immense territories spanning, from west to east, an impressively multi-ehnic and multi-cultural continent. It is impossible not to be fascinated by the incredible variety of animals embroidered on a Zoroastrian shawl; by the dress from Kohistan with four hundred multiple inserts; by the face cover with which young brides of Karakalpak wore when they left home to go and live at their husband’s house; by the wonderful, sheer saris (jamdam) of Bengal; by the elegance of the royal couple at the court of Yogjakarta; by the vegetable fibre garment worn by Chinese peasants to project themselves against the rain; by the Japanese fireman’s padded uniform.. by their contrasting design, techniques, structures, and decorations.
