Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Pick up an interior decorating magazine or walk through a home goods store and you will not miss seeing toiles in almost protean profusion. Toiles for All Seasons is about this fascinating textile story.

The technology to produce the washable printed fabrics we take for granted today, on anything from high fashion clothing to shower curtains, was not developed and industrialised until the middle of the eighteenth century. At that point, with an explosion of activity the business of printing colorfast dress and furnishings yardage transformed the economies of Great Britain and France over the next half-century. Printed cottons became a prime commodity and a major export.

This book focuses specifically on the early scenic, copperplate and engraved roller-printed furnishing fabrics, the rich complexity of their designs, and some of the fascinating stories their pictures reveal. The designs mirror every aspect of life and culture in the societies whose demand for these domestic textiles turned them into a fashion craze -- a trend that has recently been witnessing a lively revival in America and abroad.
