It is an excellent introduction and overview of the crafts of the area, from household items of metal, china, and wood, to weaving implements, clothing, jewelry, textiles and horse harness. With regard to women's clothing, and jewelry, one learns that items of jewelry, and colors of garments denote the wearer's age and marital status. Needless to say, I now own many other books on this topic. This is a "must have" book for anyone interested in ethnic arts of Central Asia.
