Description: Produced to accompany a special exhibition at Norwich Castle, the catalogue provides a fine introduction to the manufacture of the Norwich shawl and its many intricate manifestations. Between 1785 and 1885, weavers and dyers in Norwich, England, produced these beautiful shawls based on Indian carvings and tapestries making the small town prosper in the textile industry. The collected color photographs in this volume attest to the artistry of design and production while at the same time giving readers a glimpse into the fashions of the period.
