Indian TextilesRegular price ₹ 2,995.00
No other land enjoys such a profusion of creative energies for the production of textiles as India. From the Rann of Kutch to the Coromandel Coast, from city and village, handloom weavers, block printers, painters, dyers and embroiderers continue its flourishing textile traditions. John Gillow and Nicholas Barnard have travelled thousands of miles to gather first-hand information and colour pictures of cloths. They examine the cultural background: the history, the materials and the techniques - weaving, printing, painting and tie-and-dye. They then give a detailed region-by-region account of traditional textile production. An array of photographs provides a display of the textiles. A detailed reference section completes this essential guide.
