'I welcome this journal as an exciting event, which has been long overdue. It provides a window into the vast field of textiles, which is the very fabric of our life.'Jasleen Dhamija, Independent Scholar'Textile aims to publish cutting-edge research into the meanings of cloth, within the broadest context of material and visual culture. On this first showing, the publication is not only academic but accessible, with diverse contributions presented in a readable format. Textile shows that wider cultural interest in 'the crafts' comes when we dare to move beyond the narrow concerns of tradition and technique.'Crafts 'I find this a wonderful and worthy enterprise that I am sure will deepen and enrich thinking of artists and scholars, myself among them.'Surfacing Journal'This journal has a lot going for it. It is easy to handle, well printed on good paper, imaginatively designed. Any university or college with an interest in textiles should subscribe to it
