Weaving is an ancient craft with a fascinating history, and one that keeps evolving. Today it is being adopted and reinvented by makers in cities all over the world. From rugs and wall hangings to artistic installations and subversive interventions, contemporary expressions of the craft are as diverse as they are numerous. A feast for the eye, this book celebrates contemporary weaving and its makers, presenting a carefully curated selection of weavers alongside a rare glimpse into their worlds. In six in-depth and thematic essays, design expert and journalist Katie Treggiden explores the craft, its history, and the many faces of its current revival.
