64 AGELESS - May/June 2015
Textiles that time cannot wither nor custom stale

Classic textiles and changing attitudes meet in an issue dedicated to timeless beauty. We visit the Parco dei Principi Hotel in Sorrento, designed in the 60s by Gio Ponti, and photograph 71 year-old model Benedetta Barzini. Elsewhere Amanda Carr demands the right to grow old gracefully, fashionably, energetically, gently – or in any way she chooses.

On the 200th anniversary of the death of Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf, founder of the factory that popularised Toile de Jouy, V&A curator Sarah Grant explains the ongoing appeal of this decorative fabric. And even a touch of nostalgia creeps in when Ptolemy Mann meets the charming creators of Bagpuss and the Clangers.

Selvedge magazine offers the world's finest textile photography, unparalleled design and peerless writing. Directed towards an international, discerning audience, Selvedge covers fine textiles in every context: fine art, interiors, fashion, travel and shopping. It is published every other month.

The trial issue features an interview by Yoshiko Wada with African-American quilter Effie Mae Howard , Jessica Hemmings chats to dancer-turned-designer Mariem Besbes and Catherine Howard investigates the social and cultural manifestations of the use of feathers in South America.

Other features include a section on news discussing the latest tends and essential ideas, a section listing international exhibitions, fairs and up comings events as well as a section on newly released books.
