DECORATIVE AND FANCY TEXTILE FABRICS. Originally published in 1898. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. This book provides the reader with plentiful information on designing ornamental textiles, the machinery used for making textiles and extensive explanations on the application of design and manufacture of a number of different products from a multitude of ornamental carpets and tapestries to silk scarfs, ribbons and dress fabrics. A very interesting read for anyone interested in the design and application of decoration on textiles.
