Embroidery from Afghanistan. It was made by a mother belonging to the Turkmen confederation living in northern Afghanistan, possibly belonging to the Ersari tribe. A page to celebrate the traditional embroidery of Afghanistan  . The metallic discs, felt triangles and tassels were intended to ward off the envious evil-eye, protecting the mother's beloved son at a crucial stage of his upbringing. The striped fabric is hand-woven 'keteni'. The bottom edge of these kyrlyks was always left unfinished. It was believed that as long as the edge disappeared gradually the life of the young boy would never end abruptly. Fabric Folios Series.

Beautiful photos, excellent close-ups of some of the stitches. A good introduction to the garment and textile styles of Afghanistan. However, there is one error. In discussing the Tekke Turkmen woman's cloak (chyrpy), Ms. Paine states that a chyrpy of dark green fabric is intended for a young girl.

The chyrpy is a married woman's garment, the color of which indicates the woman's age. A chyrpy of dark green, dark blue, or black cloth, is worn by young married women. A chyrpy of yellow cloth is worn by middleaged women, and one of white cloth is worn by women past menopause. See The Arts and Crafts of Turkestan by Johannes Kalter.

I love this book and carry it around with me when I travel. It's full of information. The glue in the binding is not good. I will have to re-glue it.

I can only give one star since the binding on the book was very loose and then first time reading, it (the cover) came completely off. Too bad,the illustrations are quite lovely. I also ordered Embroidery from Palestine, and sad to say, same problem. Perhaps this was part of the reason for your big clearance sale??? The 1 star is only for what could be very good content.

Whether or not you're happy with the binding of a book gives no information about its quality in illustration and text. This is very valuable to me in the multitude of photos it shows and then the text discussing them. A lot of work went into the book: a lot of research and analysis and it's well-presented. If someone got a poor copy it's something they should take up with the seller or Amazon. Better yet, shop around and be willing pay for the quality of book you desire. To bring down the favorability of this book that's neither here nor there about the contents is simply unfair.

This is nice and highly recommended book. Since when does a book have to be perfect in composition and presentation? Even if that's the standard, I believe it meets it.

The book itself is an excellent overview of Afghani regional embroidery; it actually covers a broader territory than Afghanistan. Examples in the book are from Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, as well. It opens with some history and cultural background to better understand the materials available (fabric and threads), the variety of stitches used, and the people who embroidered and wore the clothing. It then goes on to have beautiful photos of samples- from caps to bags to clothing. As an embroiderer, I was particularly impressed and happy to see that in place of a simple photograph of the piece at a distance to see the embroidery placement, there were also multiple close-up shots to see distinct stitches used, the sheen or fluff of threads, and variegation in colors. As this is just an introduction to the embroidery, don't expect to find explanations of how to recreate the stitches used or an in-depth interpretation of their symbolism. There is a helpful "further reading" section to the back for people who are intrigued and would like to continue studying. The 4-star review is only because the binding is TERRIBLE. The cover fell off when I was only about 15 pages in.
