Synopsis: THAI TEXTILES (2ND ED.)

The book begins with an ethnic and historical survey of the people of Thailand, their religious and social traditions, and the role textiles play in all aspects of their lives. The author fully describes the ancient arts of silk and cotton production, spinning, weaving and dyeing as practised in the villages where traditional textile production still flourishes. Using visual evidence from sculptures, Buddhist temple mural paintings and court records, she then traces the evolution of Thai costume styles and weaving patterns, demonstrating their regional variations and connection with ethnic identity with a wide range of textiles for dress, ceremonial occasions and for household use. With 105 colour and 55 black and white illustrations.
