The Art of the Loom focuses on eight areas of special interest-Navaho weaving in North America; Bedouin textiles in the Middle East; West African narrow-strip weaving; Indonesian textiles; "kasuri" resist dyeing in Japan; inlay weaving in Nepal; brocaded motifs from Guatemala; and Peruvian tapestry weaving-and describes the fibers used.

Not so many years ago Art of the Loom was reborn out of a need to dedicate a brand to pure, natural fibre fabrics and this ethical voyage of discovery has enabled us to really make a difference to the UK textile manufacturing and finishing industry. We are very proud of this and we hope by using only; wool, linen, cotton and viscose in our ranges you too can appreciate the luxurious feel and genuine textures of mother nature’s fibres carefully woven into both traditional and contemporary fabrics.

Colorful and sometimes complex textiles are still produced in many parts of the world using only the simplest tools and equipment.

Such clarity is consistent throughout the book, making this volume extremely appealing to experienced weavers and dyers, and even to those who may wish to learn these arts.

John Gillow's Pnnted and Dyed Textiles from Africa focuses entirely on Africa, while Ann Hecht's The Art of the Loom is a global study of loom weaving, with West Africa as one of several traditions discussed. Such clarity is consistent throughout the book, making this volume extremely appealing to experienced weavers and dyers, and even to those who may wish to learn these arts. I would caution them, however, about her chapter on West African strip weaving, which is overly general and relies heavily on outdated sources, resulting in several inaccuracies.

Colourful and sometimes complex textiles are still produced in many parts of the world using only the simplest tools and equipment. This book focuses on eight areas of special interest - Navaho weaving in North America; bedouin textiles in the Middle East; West African narrow-strip weaving; Indonesian textiles; 'kasuri' resist dyeing in Japan; inlay weaving in Nepal; brocaded motifs from Guatemala; and Peruvian tapestry weaving - and describes the fibres used, the methods of spinning and dyeing, the types of loom and the techniques of weaving. Examples of the best textiles from each area are supplemented with numerous photographs of spinners, weavers and dyers at work, and diagrams showing how the various effects are achieved. As well as providing students and anthropologists with a valuable insight into working methods in a wide variety of traditional communities, this book and the exciting textiles it illustrates will be an endless source of ideas and inspiration for practising weavers.

What a beautiful book. This is filled with history and takes you on a journey around the world to explore the many facets of weaving and the many cultures that contributed to this wonderful artform.

The pictures seem to come out of museums of long ago and trace the different ways of weaving and preparing yarns. The pictures
are in full color and as you read this one is transported through time to tribal ancestry.

A gem of a book...it needs to be on the bookshelf of every weaver. Glad that I was able to get this.

This fact packed book has plenty to say. It is not really a how-to book but you will find some drafts that you can take straight to the loom. There are many other tips that can directly apply to your skills. However, this book is primarily a travel book; we are carried through different cultures to see how the are similar:
North America -The Navajo
The Middle East - the Bedouin
West Africa - Narrow-strip weaving
South-East Asia - Indonesian Textiles
East -Asia, the Islands of Japan - Kasuri resist dyeing
South Asia - Inlay weaving of Nepal
Central America - Brocaded motifs from Guatemala
South America - Peruvian tapestry weaving

There are many dolor pictures of finished product with descriptions of what you are looking at. There are also many diagrams and hand drawn images.

I am just getting into dying and still using Kool-Aid. However, for people interested in colors in general and who find this book interesting I suggest you read "A perfect Red".

The Art of the Loom is really inspirational for a beginning weaver like myself. There are beautiful color and black and white photographs of stunning pieces from around the world and throughout time, and people weaving on many different types of traditional looms. There are also illustrations explaining how much of the weaving is done, although many of them were difficult for me to digest as I am brand new at weaving. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in traditional and multi-cultural weaving.
