No region has a textile tradition more vivid and romantic than that of Central Asia. This book provides an illustrated survey of these textiles, displaying in more than 200 color plates the opulent velvets, exquisite embroideries, magnificent felts, and fine cotton weaves produced throughout the area.

Janet Harvey describes the decorative motifs, materials, dyes, and looms; the types of objects made and the diverse regional and tribal variations; clothes and costumes; and lavish embroideries and embellishments. A valuable source of information for designers and students, collectors and travelers, the book includes a glossary, a bibliography, and a list of collections.
