About This Book

2008 reissue of the 1994 illustrated account of the textile arts of Bhutan. The book originally accompanied the first major presentation of Bhutan's textile art in the West which took place at the Peabody Essex Museum, Massachusetts. Specialised papers are grouped and address: textiles in the country's cultural history; women and men in textile use and creation; and meaning and materials involved. Graphics and archival material as well as colour photographs of the exhibits indicate the beauty and diversity of Bhutan's past and present textile artefacts. With glossary, notes, catalogue of exhibits, bibliography and index.
