Description
Information
Whether it's a hand-woven sarape, a festive square of oilcloth, or a delicate trimming of lace, Mexican textiles reflect passionate appreciation for colour, pattern, and design.

In the dazzling pages of 'Mexican Textiles', photographer and Mexican art aficionado Masako Takahashi shares her love of the form, taking readers on a journey through this sun-drenched land. She visits artisan workshops, weaving centres, lace makers, and family-owned rug manufacturers for an inside view of how traditional fabrics are designed, dyed, woven, and finished.

Takahashi also takes her camera into scores of unique homes to show how new and antique woven treasures are used to advantage in modern décor. In the text, readers discover insightful notes on regional differences, history, technique, and tips for identifying quality materials and craftsmanship.

Overflowing with exuberance and creative ideas, and including a resource section listing the major textile markets and vendors throughout Mexico, 'Mexican Textiles' is an indispensable resource book for appreciating and collecting artfully crafted Mexican fabrics.
