The text includes details of dozens of textile techniques, such as loom types, materials, forms of decoration and local specialities, while hundreds of glorious illustrations including specially taken colour images of textiles on display, photographs of weavers and dyers in action, and rare historical material constitute an astonishingly varied visual panorama that will appeal to collectors, travellers and anyone interested in Islamic culture.
