Overview

Through the Eye of a Needle is a brilliant account of his journey—illuminating, enchanting, and often extremely funny—arguing that the way we look at clothing influences the way we look at the environment, the economy, and life itself. Few books written in our soulless times have such potential to transform people’s minds so completely—while also making them laugh. His encounters are by turns humorous and enlightening. He meets BBC TV’s Jeremy Clarkson, Hollywood superstars Richard Gere and Daryl Hannah, spiritual teachers, politicians, call-center and sweatshop workers, artists, Transition Town leader Rob Hopkins, Prince Charles’s own Savile Row tailor, and many others.
