Kojo Arthur and Robert Rowe - 1998-2001 AKAN CLOTH ADINKRA KENTE KENTE MOTIFS WAX & NONWAX PRINTS ASAFO FLAGS AKUNINTAM One of the most obvious features of the material culture of the Akan is cloth. The Akan have used cloth not only for personal adornment , but they have also used it metaphorically as a powerful expressive medium of communication. The Akan cloths include the screen and block-printed adinkra , the hand-woven kente , the appliqued akunintam and asafo flags, and the factory-made Java and wax prints . Variety of adinkra cloths The communicative aspects of cloth among the Akan have been discussed in a limited way as "proverb cloths" by Aronson (1992) and Domowitz (1992) and as "textile rhetoric" by Yankah (19 Read More

Finnish National Costumes

Votes:0
I n the study of Finnish national costumes, it is important to make the distinction between folk costumes and national costumes, and to realize that the national costume is an outgrowth and a redefinition of the folk costume. F olk costumes were commonly worn by ordinary people whose highly developed skills and innate artistic instincts were manifest in the beauty and quality of their home-loomed clothing. Festive garments were woven from wool with cotton warp. The art of weaving was well developed. T he types of patterns used in the cloth tell of admiration of the high-class silk fabrics whose decorations were normally colorful groups of stripes. The wool was dyed with pigments derived from nature, with the exception of the colors blue and red; they had to be purchased from foreign source Read More

Ghost Dance Dress

Votes:0
The Ghost Dance was the vision of a Paiute prophet, Wovoka. As a nonviolent religious movement that was spread among the Plains peoples during the 1880s, its focus was the preservation of Native American culture against the encroachment of the white man. Believers participated in ecstatic dances and communal ceremonies so that a new age of peace and prosperity would dawn for Native Americans. In 1890 the movement ended when U.S. soldiers attacked a group of worshipers at Wounded Knee, killing about 250 people. The religious symbols on this dress include the turtle that brought soil for the world's creation, and birds, messengers to the spirit world.

Plaid Instructions and other Observations on Scottish Reenacting These are some notes I made following a request for information on wearing the plaid on the alt.living.history newsgroup. I have kept them as pre-formatted text because of the ascii diagram. These instructions are from a complete novice having only worn the plaid (or philibegs!) on two days fighting as a highlander for Bonnie Prince Charlie at the battle of Prestonpans last year. That isn?t as bad as it sounds because I have had to get it really straight in my own mind what to do, so that it comes out OK.

Shibori - A Definition

Votes:0
Shibori - A Definition Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The word comes from the verb root shiboru , "to wring, squeeze, press." Although shibori is used to designatc a particular group of resist-dyed textiles, the verb root of the word emphasizes the action performed on cloth, the process of manipulating fabric. Rather than treating cloth as a two-dimensional surface, with shibori it is given a three-dimensional form by folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, or plucking and twisting. Cloth shaped by these methods is secured in a number of ways, such as binding and knotting. It is the pliancy of a textile and its potential for creating a multitude of shape-resisted designs that the Japanese concept Read More

Syrian Village Woman

Votes:0
Syrian village women wear an enveloping one piece garment called an ezar. It is a rectangle roughly twice as long as the woman is tall and when draped over the figure it gives the effect of a two piece hooded dress. A sash tied around the waist adjusts the length of the ezar and helps hold it in place. The women who wear this costume may also be veiled. If they do not veil, they arrange the ezar so that it covers their hair and the lower part of the face. Above the waist the garment is secured from inside by the hands. Each village is distinguished by its own ezar. For example, the Hama woman pictured here on the left wears a cotton ezar hand block printed in stripes of red, dark blue and black dye. The woman on the right models the Homs dress woven and fashioned from the brilliant gold co Read More

Fine Wearables by Michael Davis and Carol Freeman "Mushroom gills and luna moth wings wrapped in snake skin, a visual stew so powerful that I could smell it through the glass" Michael Davis It is my intention to make beautiful cloth. Carol Freeman takes the dyed cloth, and with her impeccable sewing and exquisite designs, she constructs very special clothing, pillows, and wall-hangings. In our culture the importance of cloth is usually overlooked. One of my textile teachers once pointed out that as newborns we are comforted in a cotton receiving blanket and when buried, we're often clothed in a shroud. I hope that our work brings some joy and beauty to the journey. Dresses Tunics Jackets Kimonos Scarves Feel free to explore our studio and learn more about us .
