From the author of The Secret Lives of Colour, this fascinating book explores the history of civilization and human creativity: from the mummies of Ancient Egypt and the silken dragon robes of Imperial China to the woollen sails of Viking longboats and the Indian calicoes.

Kassia St Clair studied the history of women's dress and masquerade during the 18th century and uses her knowledge and wit to argue that fabrics have changed and shaped the world we live in today.

Packed with compelling stories from around the world and spanning thousands of years of human ingenuity, this book is sure to change the way you see the world.
