Description
Many of the oldest and most appealing designs of the human imagination have been expressed in patterns. This is evident in the South Pacific, where patterns in weaving and decoration record an ever-changing story in which the islanders have reacted to contacts with exploring Europeans and contemporary Western culture. With 327 color illustrations, this book is a visual journey through the history of the islands through fiber and fabric. It considers the cultural relevance of both ritual forms and patterns in the everyday, including floor coverings, cooking containers, and storage baskets, as well as the use of fiber art in architecture and interiors.
