African wax print fabric is a defining metaphor of African design, fashion and expression--an immediately recognizable icon throughout the world. But without the textile barons of the Industrial Revolution, would wax print exist at all? And would our perception of African design be completely different? To find out, Magie Relph and Robert Irwin follow the trail of African wax print from its origin in Java to the shores of the Gold Coast. It's a fascinating story. Brimming with stunning illustrations and compelling text, this book provides a wealth of well-researched information and infinite inspiration for textile artists, quilters, embroiderers, spinners, weavers, dyer—indeed, anybody who loves and uses textiles.
