Selvedge issue 79

From the pocket springs in our mattresses to the glowing artwork of Astrid Krogh, to the making of gilt thread and the history of ribbon weaving, this issue celebrates textiles that illuminate the shorter days and darker nights of the winter solstice. By journeying to France to see the making of Bohin pins and watching the glistening pinscreen animated films of Alexander Alexeieff and Claire Parker, we get to the source of what brightens the lives of makers in the textile industry.
