This volume offers a thoroughly illustrated, region-by-region survey of textiles made, worn, used and displayed in every corner of the Islamic world.

The text includes details of dozens of textile techniques, such as loom types, materials, forms of decoration and local specialities, while hundreds of illustrations constitute a varied visual panorama that will appeal to collectors, travellers and anyone interested in Islamic culture.

A very beautifully illustrated survey of the colourful textiles from this region.
