ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the link between textiles and text. She states that the link between the two is innumerable and rich with potential, in which textiles speak a language which has the power of familiarity. She stresses that textiles are link to sensual memory just as the text of the book is link to the story. She also adds that textiles are a formal language that comes to an individual as an oral tradition.
