    Combining an artist’s eye with an in-depth knowledge of textile techniques, Victoria Rivers draws on an extraordinary array of international research and anthropological studies to examine the lustrous qualities of silk and the special treatments that give fabrics shimmering qualities. She explores the use of gold, silver, metals, sequins, beads and mirrors for decoration, as well as showing how other gifts of nature – shells, seeds, feathers and beetle wings – are cleverly manipulated to simulate more precious materials. This marvellously illustrated, superbly designed and highly original odyssey through the world’s cultures is essential reading for anyone concerned with the history of textiles and contemporary fashion, as well as all those interested in the symbolism and rituals of traditional societies.
