“Robes of Honour”: The Decorative Arts of Luxury Silk-weaving in the Islamic World. 6am-7am EDT

About this Event

Sericulture & Silk-weaving was introduced in the Middle & Near East as early as the 6th c. C.E. via trade links between Central Asia & China. This lecture will look at the development under Islamic dynasties, and how Mediterranean trade shaped European tastes and inspired new silk weaving centres.
