Summary
"This book is intended to help you examine the rugmaking styles and methods of some other cultures and apply them to the most contemporary techniques ~ needlepoint, latch hooking, rya, and punch hooking. You will find a wide diversity of period and contemporary designs, ranging from bold geometrics of nomadic mideastern tribes and the graceful court arabesques of Persia to the equally striking rya rugs and hangings of Scandinavia and the bold and imaginative styles of the contemporary art market. You will see many photographs of historic and antique rugs and carpets, and find pages of design adaptations ready for you to work. You will learn how rugs and hangings were made in their own cultures, and by what contemporary technique they can most faithfully be translated. Because loom weaving is a complicated and technical craft requiring its own set of design blueprints, the rugmaking methods in this book are arbitrarily limited to needlepoint, latch hooking, rya, and punch hooking. The design adaptations throughout will suggest typical or characteristic color schemes and rugmaking methods most closely related to the original product."--Amazon
