Lavishly illustrated with contemporary, archival and museum images, Pacific Pattern takes us on a stunning visual journey through the history of the Pacific, the various techniques and culture associated with fibre and fabric. This is the first book to cover not only the ritual domain but everyday patterns, including floor coverings, cooking and storage containers and the use of fibre art in architecture and interiors. This treasure trove of inspiration will be an indispensable sourcebook for artists, craftspeople, designers, architects and anyone who has ever been interested in what anthropologists can tell us about the expression of our deepest feelings and beliefs.
