Book Description
Luxury, beauty, refinement, sensuality, elegance –silk is synonymous with all of these qualities. No fibre – natural or manmade – rivals its versatility. Silk is light but strong, smooth and soft, supremely adaptable. It can be made wonderfully warm or deliciously cool. It can be dyed with infinite subtlety or boldness of colour. When worn or draped, its fluidity is spellbinding. The Book of Silk tells the rich history of this remarkable material through five millennia, reproducing hundreds of fabrics, furnishings and garments from all parts of the world or world. Form ancient China, where the secret of reeling silkworm cocoons was first discovered, the narrative leads by the legendary Silk Routes to Byzantium and the Islamic world, to Ottoman Turkey and India – and on to the Renaissance, and the baroque and rococo silks of western Christendom.
