Handmade cloth items always have a story, and many of us spend our lives hunting and gathering precious pieces and scraps to add that final touch of life to a special room or outfit. Cloth is an inspirational guide to the beauty, history, and utility of natural textiles. Woven throughout the five main sections—cotton, wool, silk, linen, and hide—are more than 30 breathtaking sewing projects that make the most of each textile’s properties, including waxed-cotton purses, Liberty-print cushions, silk scarves, linen bedcovers, and leather journals. With a guide full of invaluable information on where to buy antique fabrics and organic and well-sourced cloth, plus a toolkit of essential instructions on hand-dyeing fabric, Cloth is both a resource and an opportunity to create practical, precious, and personal items for mindful living.
