A Practical Treatise on Weaving and Designing Textile Fabrics - With Chapters on Principles of Construction of the Loom, Calculations, and Colour

A Practical Treatise on Weaving and Designing of Textile Fabrics. Contains chapters on the principles of construction of the loom, calculations, and colour along with around three hundred and eighty illustrations. Originally published in 1879. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.The rise and progress of the textile manufacturers of this country have, within the last century, been something marvelous, and the products of the loom have been no small degree contributed to the wealth of the nation. Yet it is remarkable that this art possesses fewer works or treatises than any other of the arts or manufactures of this country. The study of this volume should assist the student in any degree in mastering the details of his craft. The aim has been to reduce the whole art of weaving and designing of textile fabrics to simple principles, and to lay them before the reader in brief and consice a form as possible, with just sufficient illustrations to make the matter clear and intelligible, and free it from ambiguity which frequently characterises works of this description.

Weaving and Dyeing in Highland Ecuador

Author: Ann Pollard Rowe,Laura M. Miller,Lynn A. Meisch

Although less well known than its much-admired counterparts in Peru and Bolivia, highland Ecuadorian weaving is an Andean tradition that has relationships with these more southern areas. A world away from the industrialized textile manufacturing of Euro-American society, these handmade pieces reflect the history and artistry of an ancient culture. This comprehensive study, edited by Ann Pollard Rowe, is unrivaled in its detail and includes not only descriptions of the indigenous weaving and dyeing technology, but also an interpretation of its historical significance, as well as hundreds of photographs, drawings, and maps that inform the understanding of the process. The principal focus is on backstrap-loom weaving, a major pre-Hispanic technology. Ecuadorian backstrap looms, which differ in various ways from those found elsewhere in the Andes, have previously only been treated in general terms. Here, the basic operation of this style of loom is covered, as are a variety of patterning techniques including warp-resist (ikat) dyeing, weaving belts with twill, and supplementary- and complementary-warp patterning. Spanish colonial treadle-loom weaving is also covered. The weaving techniques are explained in detail, so the reader can replicate them if desired. Textiles have been an important art form among Andean peoples from remote prehistory up to the present. A greater understanding of their creation process can yield a more meaningful appreciation of the art itself.

Cords

Reflections on Weaving the Tapestry of Life

Author: Patricia Tibbs

Publisher: Tate Pub & Enterprises Llc

ISBN: 9781617776052

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 125

When Patricia Tibbs was twenty-six years old and about to have her first child, her nurse asked her a question that left her baffled:'What race are you? We need it for the form.'In her life, Patricia Tibbs has been called almost every color there is-black, white, brown, gold-but she has never given much thought to her race. The daughter of a Hungarian woman and a Ugandan man, Patricia has lived in Europe, Africa, and North America and has seen firsthand the way people react to those who are different from the norm. But knowing you are different is not the same as knowing who you are.In Cords, Patricia tells the story of how she drew from three diverse cultures and ultimately weaved her own unique identity from these distinct threads. A powerful meditation on the meaning of family, identity, and community, Cords encourages readers to expand their boundaries and experience the rich diversity of human experience. Only by embracing our differences and strengthening bonds across racial, political, and cultural lines can we realize our potential as individuals and as a global community.
