Textiles from Burma: Featuring the James Henry Green Collection
By Elizabeth Dell, Sandra Dudley

Travellers to Burma over the centuries have recorded the sumptuous textiles produced and worn in great variety by the different peoples living there. Collectors have brought vivid examples of these textiles back to museums and collections around the world. "Textiles from Burma" presents the richness of these textile traditions, illustrated with examples from the James Henry Green collection at Brighton Museum, and from other collections around the world. In essays and case studies by textiles scholars, collectors and anthropologists, this book places these textiles traditions within the contexts that have produced and used them, from the 19th century to the present.
