The Book of Silk
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungLuxury, beauty, refinement, sensuality, elegance - silk is synonymous with all of these. No fiber - natural or man-made - rivals its versatility. Silk is light but strong, smooth and soft, supremely adaptable. It can be made wonderfully warm or deliciously cool, and dyed with infinite subtlety or boldness of color. When worn or draped, its fluidity is spellbinding.
PortraitPhilippa Scott is London Arts Correspondent for the Turkish magazine Cornucopia and Contributing Editor to the prestigious art textiles magazine Hali. Among her other books is Turkish Delights, also published by Thames & Hudson.
