Everything has to start somewhere. When it comes to clothing, without fabric we have very little. Having questioned this I began to ask myself what is fabric – what is classified as fabric? Is fur fabric? Is paper fabric?
“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely – and this is precisely what I shall do. I was fortunate enough to be given a book for my recent birthday by a dear friend – ‘The Golden Thread’ by Kassia St Clair. The book is all about how fabric changed history and seems a good a starting point as any.
So my journey begins..
