Book Description
This marvelous volume is the first comprehensive survey of the traditional, handcrafted, indigenous textiles of the entire African continent, illustrated with over 570 spectacular color photographs. Covering the handmade textiles of West, North, East, Central, and Southern Africa, African Textiles outlines the vast array of techniques used, including stripweaving and cut-pile raphia embroidery (methods virtually unique to the continent), tie and dye, stitched resist, appliqué, beadwork, shell-and feather-work. Also explored are the different types of looms, materials, and dyes that help to create these sumptuous textiles.
