Summary

This book presents cotton cultivation and the geography of its production worldwide, at the centre of major economic issues. From the East to Europe, and from Africa to the United States, it also traces the plant's adventures and how it was processed until the Industrial Revolution, before introducing us to the multitude of fabrics used by designers in so many different ways: calico, muslin, denim, toile de Jouy, provençal quilting... the list goes on. This lavishly illustrated work is both an art book and a reference work on the topic.
