Woven Wonder: The Tradition of Indian Textiles

 
Asha Rani Mathur (Author)
Synopsis Indian Textiles have a glorious tradition going back about fifty centuries, nourished by the creative and innovative energies of its craftsmen. Upto the 18 century no other country in the world produced such an abundance and variety of textiles; at that time India was the largest exporter of textiles. This book briefly traces the story of Indian textiles. The six sections of the book cover fabrics and the importance of colour; the processes of fabrics, their dyeing, weaving and embellishments such as embroidery, brocading and printing; and ends with a fervent plea for the sustenance of this heritage. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, including those of rare or unusual museum pieces, this book encapsulates one of the greatest of Indian achievements.
