From the Publisher


The Art of African Textiles traces some paths through the complex and still largely unresearched history of African textile artistry. It explores the ways cloth is used in African societies and the role of cloth traditions in contemporary dress and fashion design. Major forms and styles of the twentieth century are introduced, those which are both cherished in their local context and increasingly sought after by collectors and museums worldwide.
