The history of the varied group of textiles known as new draperies raises central issues for the development of the European economy in the pre-industrial period, but no single book surveys the development of new manufactures in England and the Netherlands. The New Draperies in the Low Countries and England updates the traditional historical view, transcending a narrowly regional approach and adopting an international perspective which offers many original insights and suggestions for new lines of enquiry. European scholars from different countries discuss changes in manufacturing techniques, describing the ways in which socio-political circumstances, such as war and the migration of workers, affected these industries. Setting the trade against a wide canvas which spans Western Europe, India and the Middle East, these scholars connect the history of the new draperies to a broader context of textile production. This book is intended for scholars and students of economic history, history of technology, social history, European history, museums and textiles.
