"The Textile Museum of Canada holds a wide variety of traditional textiles from Asia and Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey. Through these textiles, the author draws a picture of traditional nomadic life, a life that is gradually vanishing as a result of rapid social and economic changes. The textiles discussed include a broad range of items made by nomadic people of Central and West Asia: Turkmen, Kazakh and Kirghiz, Uzbek, Baluch and Shahsevan, Bakhtiari, Kurds and Qashqai. The rugs, tents, clothing and animal gear show various textile techniques." -Publisher English-French text.
