Handmade textiles are personal, no matter where in the world they're created, and these photos and explanations of 25 diverse world cultures' techniques vividly share the details.  Take a voyage through the pages to see how today's artisans continue to create traditional fiber arts with age-old methods.

Blending well-researched information, engaging style, and inspiration, Deb Brandon shares fascinating stories about region-specific crafts - for example, espadrilles, flatwoven rugs, mittens, vandou flags, mirror embroidery - and the histories they hold.  This open-eyes approach offers new ideas for textile devotees and for anyone interested in heritage crafts and cultures.
