Get your own paperback copy of Mark Campbell's The Art Of Hair Work, filled with numerous braid patterns ranging from 16-32 strands. Explore the craft of hairwork through original documents.
*This book contains original patterns from 1850-1870s. It is not a how-to book for horsehair braiding.
Hair work and braiding at its height of sophistication is detailed in this republication of the 1875 edition. Much akin in technique to Kumi-Himo, these braids rely on openness and texture rather than color. Supplemented by material from Godey's Lady's Book from years 1850 - 1859. Should appeal to craft person, historian, jeweler and collector.
