Publisher: Thames && Hudson Uk | ISBN: 9780500025819 | Pages: 216

A vibrant, in-depth survey of the techniques and traditions of patchwork around the world. What do Korean bojagi wrapping cloths, Cameroonian Bamileke boubous, Peruvian montera hats and Hungarian cifraszür shepherd cloaks have in common? Each is made using the ancient technique of patchwork – the art of juxtaposing fabrics and motifs to create blankets, clothes, accessories and more. Catherine Legrand, who has spent many years travelling and researching textiles, has a deep knowledge of the techniques and traditions that characterize patchwork. Pieced together much like the gorgeous textiles it portrays, her beautifully illustrated book features over 300 dazzling photographs of patchwork around the world. She takes the reader from Europe and the Americas to Africa and Asia, where these ancient traditions still survive and patchwork is part of the fabric of everyday life. Textile artists, patchwork enthusiasts and travellers alike will find an endless source of inspiration on the pages of this celebration of the beauty and diversity of patchwork.
