Ep 2: Silk 2 with Arathi Prasad and Paul Blanc

Throughout the Cloth Cultures podcasts and associated exhibition, fashion historian Amber Butchart explores movement, migration and making through cloth, speaking to artists, historians, makers, and scientists to shed light on our textile history. 

Featuring Biologist and writer Arathi Prasad and Physician and Professor of Medicine at the University of California, Paul Blanc.

Focussing on four fabrics – silk, linen, wool and cotton - Amber investigates the global strands of local stories that link Lancashire, at the heart of the textile industry in Britain, to areas throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
