Susi Dunsmore obituary

The Guardian
My friend Susi Dunsmore, who has died aged 90, was an authority on Nepalese textile traditions, which she first recorded in two books, published in her handwritten text, with her own line drawings, Weaving in Nepal (1983), mainly about Dhaka weaving, and The Nettle in Nepal (2006). She was born in Charlottenburg, Berlin, to Margarete (nee Hickmann), a telephone operator, and Julius Heinze, a bank clerk. After attending art school in Düsseldorf, in 1958 she was invited to teach at a teachers’ training college in Kuching, Borneo, where she wrote handbooks on art education. There she met her future husband, John Dunsmore, who was working in the department of agriculture, and also developed her appreciation of indigenous cultures.
