Prevailing patterns that encircle the earth

Trade winds are the prevailing wind patterns that carried ships across oceans, establishing trade routes that changed the course of textiles forever. In this issue we explore the cross-pollination of ideas made possible by trade, from the batik villages in Pekalongan, Indonesia, to cotton’s journey from Savannah to the port of Liverpool. We also look to the eastwhere we find traces of French tradition in exquisite Vietnamese embroidery, and take a trip through France to discover how the country’s rich textile history makes itself known today.
