Asha Rani Mathur (Author)
Synopsis The high technical accomplishments of classical carpets and their luxiurious materials astonished the world; today, more than four centruies later, India remains a major producer of fine quality handknotted carpets. This book in five part briefly looks at the history and craft of the carpet in India and its design inspirations, from the early Persian influence to the evolved Indian style. The main production centres are also viewed. Apart from the pile carpet, an account of durries, their antiquity, decline and revival, is also given. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs from a number of sources, from museums to weaving villages, this book is a glimpse of one of the most celebrated of Indian textile arts.
