Naga Textiles: Design, Technique, Meaning and Effect of a Local Craft Tradition

Naga Textiles: Design, Technique, Meaning and Effect of a Local Craft Tradition

£49.50 GBP

The focus of this comprehensive work is the aesthetics and the decryption of the language of the textiles of the Nagas, a group of tribal local cultures in the north-east of India and the north-west of Burma. For more than ten years, anthropologist Marion Wettstein has systematically been drawing the traditional fabrics, and researching their design, production techniques, meaning and contemporary transposition into fashion. More than 60 colour pencil drawings and 180 watercolours on the morphology of the textile samples are considered by the author to be not just an artistic translation but in particular visual argumentation.
