Summary
"Lavishly illustrated throughout with a rare combination of contemporary, archival and museum images, Pacific Pattern takes us on a stunning visual journey through the history of the Pacific, the various techniques associated with fibre and fabric and their cultural relevance to the people. It is the first book to reach beyond the ritual domain to encompass patterns in the everyday sphere, including the traditional patterns found in floor coverings, cooking containers or storage baskets and the use of fibre art in architecture and interiors. This treasure trove of inspiration will captivate anyone who has ever been interested in what anthropologists can tell us about the expression of our deepest feelings and beliefs and will be an indispensable sourcebook for artists, craftspeople, designers and architects worldwide."--BOOK JACKET
