Readers might be interested in a book of ours that has just been published by River Books in Bangkok:

Mantles of Merit: Chin Textiles from Myanmar, India and Bangladesh by David W. and Barbara G. Fraser

It combines historic photographs with contemporary field photographs, studio images of a wide range of Chin textiles and drawings of textile structures. There are more than 600 color photographs.

The book is available in the US from Antique Collectors Club -- and is also listed on Amazon.

Barbara and I would welcome correspondence about Chin textiles (and the book).

David

I am very pleased to welcome you to the tribaltextiles.info/community forum.

I have moved your post to our special forum for books - we are mostly all bookoholics on this forum! We have been following the progress of 'Mantles of Merit' for some months. See the post: http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... .php?t=269 I am still waiting for Amazon.co.uk to deliver me a copy - the last prognosis on 31 May was '4-6 weeks' so hopefully it may be waiting for me when I get back to work on 11 July.

Thanks for the offer of correspondence re Chin textiles and the book.

best wishes,

I have just this week bought "Mantles of Merit" from Hatchards bookshop in London. (Having had no further response from Amazon, and seeing it in the shops, I just had to pick up a copy!)
As others have remarked, it is very impressive indeed with many wonderful textile close ups. (reminicent of the Cheesman Lao Tai textiles book featured in other posts)
It covers both both northern and southern Chin groups together with the Mro and their neighbours with beautiful photos of bankets and tunics etc, old field photos and modern colour photos of textiles being worn.
There is a very detailed text, I look forward to reading as soon as I have time.
This is indeed a very much welcome volume, as in my experience, information on the Chin tribes and their rich textile tradition seems to be difficult to come by.
