A short introduction covers the history of carpets in the West, from the 16th century when they became synonymous with wealth and fashionable living, and were often included in the portraits of the day. In the nineteenth century they were reappraised as examples of good design, and seen as a source of inspiration for the creative industries. William Morris himself was instrumental in the purchase for the V&A in 1893 of the famous Ardabil Carpet, hailed in The Times as 'the finest Persian carpet in the world.'. It is only when we have an understanding of how carpets are woven that we can explore the real nature of their design: how patterns evolve and straddle boundaries of time and place. An illustrated chapter on weaving methods is supplemented by detailed structural analyses of each carpet: the result is a volume that illuminates the subject and will be of great value to collectors, designers and textile historians alike. About the Author: Jennifer Wearden is curator of 20th-century European textiles in the Department of Furniture, Textiles and Fashion of the Victoria & Albert Museum and has been responsible for many of the oriental carpets in the collection. She is co-author of three other V&A publications: Samplers (1999)_RT_ Ottoman Embroidery (2001) and Dress in Detail from around the World (2002).
