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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The list of texts on African textiles is regrettably short, so this is a welcome addition to the literature - and it validates Clarke's claim that "textiles are one of the most powerful forms of artistic expression."" - Choice "This book is a visual feast of weaving, pattern, and adornment. It will delight those interested in textiles, fashion, and African culture." --Library Journal -This book is a visual feast of weaving, pattern, and adornment. It will delight those interested in textiles, fashion, and African culture. -Library Journal
