Overview for Costume, Textiles and Jewellery of India: Traditions in Rajasthan

Costumes, Textiles and Jewellery of India-Traditions in Rajasthan unveils the eloquent world of traditional Indian attire and adornment. Costume and ornamentation in India is not exclusively a reflection of the earer's personality and preferences. It is the index of a culture proclaiming the place of origin, social position, marital status, occupation, religious affiliations and even the moods of the changing seasons as well as other socio-psychological aspects of daily life. This book focuses on Rajasthan, one of India's most celebrated states, in all the glory of its colourful history and tradition. It documents in detail, the costume and accessories of a ross-section of social groups, at a time when change and tradition are beginning to merge and evolve in the creation of new aesthetic dimensions. Each of the six sections takes up a separate aspect of costume describing rare and complex textile techniques, the nuances of clothing and colour and its usage among various social groups and provides the reader an insight into ornamentation. The section on Garment analysis includes measurements and patterns of commonly worn garments. Perceptive and intricately detailed, this book is a fascinating compilation of information and photographs collected over fifteen years of dedicated research. It is an essential reading for both, those with a casual interest in costume as well as anyone involved in its design and production. It will be particularly useful to students and researchers reflecting on the cultural, social, historic and technical aspects of textiles, attire and ornamentation.
