Description

By Amelia Peck, et al.

Beginning in the sixteenth century, the golden age of European navigation created a vigorous textile trade, and a breathtaking variety of textile designs subsequently spread across the globe. Trade textiles blended the traditional designs, skills, and tastes of their cultures of origin, with new techniques learned through global exchange, creating beautiful new works that are also historically fascinating. Interwoven Globe is the first book to analyze these textiles within the larger history of trade and design. Richly illustrated texts explore the interrelationship of textiles, commerce, and taste from the age of discovery to the nineteenth century, including a detailed discussion of 120 illuminating works. From the elaborate dyed and painted cotton goods of India to the sumptuous silks of Japan, China, Turkey, and Iran, the paths of influence are traced westward to Europe and the Americas. Essential to this exchange was the trade in highly valued natural dyes and dye products, underscoring the influence of global exploration on the aesthetics and production techniques of textiles, and the resulting fashion for the "exotic."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality As readers of Giles Milton's "Nathaniel's Nutmeg" already know, during the heyday of East-Indian trade, the Europeans could - and did - use textiles as a high-valued currency in trade between the various Eastern cultures to amass the wealth that allowed them to buy the spices they later traded in Europe. This catalog offers several great reads about various aspects of this international cultural exchange that certainly influenced even European clothing and interior decorating fashions in profound ways. Along with the observant and enlightening texts that accompany the pictures of nearly exhibited object, this makes for a book that is at once both amazing and illuminating. Should be of great interest to any textile student, whether involved lover, cool spectator or fiery artist.
