   schema:reviewBody ""In the book, a wide range of kilim types from diverse regions of Turkey is illustrated and discussed. Also included is a selection of bags and cushions, the beauty and refinement of which is often overlooked. The authors attempt to relate the weavings to the various groups who made them and, in doing so, to examine the origins of the Turkic and Kurdish elements of the population. The nomadic lifestyle, an essential part of everyone's past, also comes under scrutiny." "Drawing on their years of experience in collecting and restoration, the authors have provided an accurate account of the various weaving techniques, and have clarified some methods which are often wrongly described. Separate sections are devoted to the importance of textiles in the history of mankind, the materials, and the sources of the dyes used to obtain the glorious colours of the past. The authors have avoided making fanciful speculations, seen in some recent publications, about the origins of design elements."--BOOK JACKET." ;
