Dazzling cloths present a visual record of the trade in Indian textiles to Southeast and East Asia. With a focus on the 17th and 18th centuries, John Guy (deputy curator, Victoria and Albert Museum) examines the history of the cloth-for-spices trade, describes the techniques of textile production, and then looks in detail at the place of imported clothes in the Malay world, Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan.
