This book will make you rethink your relationship to the textiles all around you

Worn breaks down textile history into broad fiber categories: Linen, Cotton, Silk, Wool, and Synthetics. Each fiber type is placed into a rich historical context up to the present day, some of it quite dark and ugly. It will give you a completely different and valuable new perspective on all the fiber items that you use and buy.
