Description:      Weaved throughout the world, fabrics, textiles and clothes reflect the cultual richness, innovative artistry and creativity from different places. Handmade textiles are part of world heritage, and in an increasing world of technology they are a reminder of the finer items in our cultures.

Many cultures take great pride in their textile and fabrics industry, and for some countries, they are integral to their national economic output. Some fabrics cost millions of dollars, while others are very cheap, the price varies differently depending on a variety of factors.

There are so many different weaves in the world and too many for us to give you a complete global overview! But in this volume we hope to provide you with a snapshot. From China to Italy, USA to Scotland and Sri Lanka, we bring you insights into fabrics and textiles from around the world.

We hope you enjoy it!

Wira Bukit

Description:      “Kita memilih pemimpin yang menggunakan pengaruh untuk rakyat bukan menggunakan rakyat untuk pengaruh..” Begitulah antara dialog yang ditemui dalam Wira Bukit. A. Samad Said secara halus dan sinis mengajak kita melihat wajah sendiri dalam hubungannya dengan politik semasa yang kadang-kadang digunakan oleh orang-orang tertentu untuk kepentingan peribadi. Di samping unsur-unsur patriotik yang mengisahkan perjuangan menuntut kemerdekaan, drama ini juga membawa kisah cinta yang menyayat hati. Kisah penuh misteri tentang kepulangan seorang lelaki, Zahdi, ke kampung halamannya setelah 27 tahun meninggalkan tanahair. Zahdi bukan sahaja meninggalkan tanahairnya tetapi juga meninggalkan seorang gadis yang pernah dicintainya.
