Publisher Comments:

Comparing the costume, weaving, and textile techniques of its respective countries, this book takes readers deep into the "Golden Triangle" of Southeast Asia. Its chapters explore tropical forests, the plains and rivers of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar, the rice paddies of Vietnam and Cambodia, and the historic Spice Islands of Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Delving into such unique topics as the rearing of silkworms and the symbolic meanings of woven designs, this beautifully illustrated study is guaranteed to fascinate craft enthusiasts.
