The Cambridge History of Western Textiles
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
From Iron and Bronze Age spinning tools to the globalized, branded leisure wear of the late 20th century, this two-volume history brings together 32 essays by contributors ranging from archaeologists to historians of fashion to give a full account of the production and uses of textiles in the western world. The history of all the major textile industries, including wool, linen, silk, cotton and artificial fibres is explored; and the work also examines the far- reaching implications of textiles in the history of economies and societies. Slipcased.
