Tibetan Dress in Amdo and Kham by Gina Corrigan

This is a beautiful and remarkable book about the textiles and fashions in the Tibetan regions of Amdo and Kham. It would appeal to anyone interested in people of the world, particularly spinners, weavers, embroiders, jewelers and those interested in beautiful authentic costumes.

The book by Gina Corrigan is a recent look at the clothing of the region that combines the centuries old designs and constructions with touches of Western influences. Who knew that amber beads could be so huge! (See chapter 9, ‘Amulets and Jewellery’).
