Further to information on an exhibition in Taiwan earlier this year - see http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... php?t=2305 - I am very pleased to be able to share with the forum news of a new book of the same name "Recovering Lost Woven Treasures: Translation and Transformation" self published by the amazingly talented and committed weaver, Tsai Yushan, ISBN-13: 978-957-41-9248-9.

Yushan wrote the book to record more than 10 years of research and exhibitions focused on the textiles of the aboriginal tribes of Taiwan. The book is bilingual (Chinese and English). Yushan has said that if forum friends wish to purchase it they can find it at or they may contact her directly via this contact form. She only has 450 copies to sell. The book has a total 152 color pages and costs around 30S$ in Taiwan.

Yushan has sent me images of a few pages from the book which I am posting here.

In Yushan's research she has painstakingly analysed the weave structure or embroidery stitches on old textiles, charted them and, from these charts, recreated the textiles. I am totally in awe of her patience and dedication!

I am very pleased to report that Prof Tsai Yushan has very kindly obtained permission for us to publish here the article "A Weaver Looks at Tinguian Blankets" by Kathleen Forance Johnson with Yushan Tsai originally published in the Textile Society of America Newsletter Fall 2011 edition (Vol 23 Number 3). I attach the PDF file of the article here. The complete copy of the Newsletter can be found on the website of the TSA at http://textilesocietyofamerica.org/news/newsletters/ At the end of the article see the amazing chart of the weaving produced by Yushan from which she wove the example shown in her book and which so attracted John.

I found the article fascinating to read and thoroughly commend it to you.

Just to take us back to where this thread started - with Tsai Yushan's amazing detective work on studying textiles and then reproducing them on her loom - the focus of her recently published book "Recovering Lost Woven Treasures: Translation and Transformation" I attach some photos she has sent me of her working samples based on Tinguian textiles from the Philippines.

0965 and 0938 are of part of the process for the Tinguian-based fabric that is in the book and shown in my second post on this thread. Yushan comments that you can see 'a very dense density with the thin linen warp threads'.

Pic. 0849 is her woven testing sample with another Tinguian pattern (the front side). Pic. 0852 is the same testing sample (reverse side.)

Pic. 0900 is her 'transformation testing with a Tinguian pattern'. She has not had a chance to see the real fabrics yet, but she hopes one day she will be able to do so. Yushan notes that the Tinguian weavings are different from Taiwan aboriginal's fabrics. She has also said that she would be interested to see images of other Tinguian blankets which forum members may have.
