This collection of rare and exquisite textiles from Central, Northern and West Africa includes weavings from Ghana, Nigeria and the Ivory Coast; embroideries, veils and haiks from Morocco and Tunisia; and raffia fabrics from Congo. Organised by region, each piece is dramatically photographed to highlight the extraordinary colours, patterns and skill with which it was created. Drawn from a collection consisting of over 4,000 pieces, this book illustrates the most important textiles from the renowned collection. The book provides not only a thrilling sample of timeless patterns and designs but also a historical perspective that deepens our understanding of the importance of woven materials in the African tradition.
