Textiles from India by Rosemary Crill
Book DescriptionFor hundreds of years, textiles from India have travelled the globe, clothing the world, from kings and queens to the common man. Indian textiles have been traded in Europe, America, Africa, and the far east, often passing into ritual and religious custom. They have included the most exclusive and expensive festive fabrics as well as the common cloth used for daily wear. "Textiles from India" explores this fascinating global history. Lavishly illustrated with over 250 colour photographs, the book covers the medieval period up to the present day. So we read about shawls from Kashmir making their way across Asia; brocades especially woven in Benaras for Buddhist rituals in Tibet; the muslins of Bengal; the perennial European favourites of block prints and chintz.
