A beautifully illustrated reference book that explores the textiles of the Andes, their patterns, fibres, feathers and techniques

The Incas and their predecessors are renowned for their ceramics, their precious metalwork and their colossal stone buildings. But how did they dress? Precious textiles were used by the Incas not only to clothe themselves but also as a symbol of power and identity, for sacrificial purposes and as a means of exchange. This book showcases a breathtaking selection of textiles and feathers, as well as gold, silver and shell jewelry.

With texts by ten renowned scholars and over 300 colour illustrations, Inca: Textiles and Ornaments from the Andes will allow you to discover the Inca’s mastery of the art of weaving, the incredible motifs and the variety of colours of fibres and feathers used in their textiles.
