AUTHORS: Michael Franses and Penny Oakley are both independent textile scholars and dealers. Murray L Eiland III is an archaeologist and textile researcher. Jennifer Wearden, Moya Carey, Sumru Krody, Irina Koshoridze and Nino Kuprava are all former or current museum curators in London (V&A), Washington DC (The Textile Museum) and Tbilisi.
