Omg! What a wonderful travel around the world and custom history. I never expected to find so interesting text since the images are amazing yet by themselves. Surprisely I found a complete story about the color, techniques,
Culture, and craftmen that still practice the art of dyeing, I feel Iike I met them and visit them workshops.I also learned the value of the garments made by hand and admire the people that proudly wear them.

Beautiful Pictures. Had to follow connections of text to pictures at time. Narrative theme is missing at both small and large scale.
