The Fabric of Society

It’s interesting how a piece of fabric can give insights on the larger society.

Who made it? How much did it cost? For whom? For what purpose?

A piece of fabric from a period can reflect how economics, politics, fashion, culture, and values are  interwoven to form a structure that holds everything together — the fabric of society.
