As more and more people in the west
are finding the beauty in handmade
people are looking to elsewhere in the world
to find inspiration.


The book follows the stories of twenty artisans.
It's a story of tradition, innovation, 
and survival, embellished with the colors 
of a profound cultural heritage.


The book spans generations and brings
together men and women to show
what they create as well as why.


You find out the artisans stories , personal histories, 
hopes, and dreams along with the 
products of their hands and looms.


You will be amazed at how their history
brings together and amazing mix of colour and texture.


This book is interesting, brilliant to read
and a real inspiration.


If you've ever wanted to weave or you already
weave and want some new inspiration
then you will love this book.



There is so much being lost as we spend less
time making things.
This book redresses the issue and makes
sure the the designs are recorded for history.


The stories of the artisans are just as much of
the story as the designs.
Their lives have molded the way they weave
and what beautiful pieces of fabric they
create for generations to come.


I feel honoured that the people have opened
up their homes and lives to show us and
share with us the beauty of what they create.
