Book Review: Fabric

By Victoria Finlay
Review by Mida

Equal part autobiography and history, Fabric follows one woman’s journey to discover the secrets and the history of the materials we are surrounded with daily but often take for granted.

Covering the history, manufacture, origins and traditional uses of rare and enigmatic fabrics, this book is a love letter to textiles. The images scattered throughout are a wonderful addition, shining further light on the love and artistry each unique material possesses.

This unique book is unlike anything I’ve read, perfect for anyone who has ever expressed an interest in textiles, or the history buff wanting to learn about a forgotten part of our past.
