Acerca de


Textiles have been essential to the everyday lives of all societies. This authoritative study brings together and extends current knowledge on the production and uses of textiles, through the eyes of archaeologists, economic and social historians, historians of fashion and of dress, and museum curators.


'... the book is unique in the scope of its coverage coupled with the diversity of its authorship. It is finely produced with some beautiful illustrations, clear diagrams and comprehensible tables, as well as 41 full-page colour plates ... It will be a most useful source of reference and stimulation to many.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'... eminently readable ... Just to lay one's hands on this jewel of a book is a wondrous thing.' Journal for Weavers

'... the wait has certainly been worthwhile ... the two volumes here represent a remarkable achievement by an international group of textile historians working in museums and universities ... The work is well-organised and scores highly on accessibility ... an outstanding feature is the large number of superb illustrations, many in colour, which enrich the text and will undoubtedly add to the appear of these volumes ... this superbly produced two-volume set is good value for money. It combines fine scholarship which will long remain an essential guide to the subject.' Business History

'This is certainly an important reference work which should be on all good library shelves and consulted by all those with historical queries concerning textiles.' Textile History

' ... a delight ...'. Irish Economic & Social History
