“All textiles begin with a twist. From colourful 30,000-year old threads found on the floor of a Georgian cave to what the linen wrappings of Tutankhamun’s mummy actually meant; from the Silk Roads to the woollen sails that helped the Vikings reach America 700 years before Columbus; from the lace ruffs that infuriated the puritans to the Indian calicoes and chintzes that powered the Industrial Revolution, our continuing reinvention of cloth tells fascinating stories of human ingenuity.” Watch a short clip of the author, here.
Readers, start your pages! In a Draft later this summer (what is time, now), we’ll follow up with a set of discussion questions, a link to a Groups.io book club, and a date for dicussion. Thanks to all who voted!
