Read an Excerpt

I t is a mistake to underestimate the significance of the relationship between humans and the cloth that they make. There is very little that is not revealed about the geography, status, economy, and above all identity of the maker or weaver of cloth; we are what wear and use cloth for. In modern, urban societies we have swapped natural or tribal costume for an adherence to the commands of international fashion houses. But the need to own or wear texture, colour, and pattern still results in the continuing reestablishment of our own identity.
