Handcrafted Indian textiles, steeped in tradition, are the living heritage of the glory of India. The decade spanning 1980-1990 witnessed a renaissance in the promotion and revival of techniques, some of which were in danger of becoming extinct. Warps and wefts underwent a transformation, with assorted weaves being combined to produce 'new from the old'. Written and edited by renowed names in textile design, this book is, indeed, a treasure for both the textile aficionado and designer. Printed Pages: 150 with numerous colour illustrations. 000548

The sari is the most representative apparel of India that has intrigued men and tempted women all over the world. Worn in a variety of ways, the sari is a fabric-length of varying densities in its body, borders and end pieces often woven by combining a range of cottons and silks in colours and patterns that are constantly evolving. This book is an exhaustive overview of this fascinating unstitched garment and a cutting-edge documentation of design and all that supports it socially, culturally and economically. Travelling district by district, village by village, the book explores an entire spectrum of traditional weaver and printer settlements in fourteen sari-producing states of India. Thus emerges the first comprehensive compilation of the whole range and scale of the sari: the structures, designs, colours, the format and technology that make up the lingua of the sari; the inspiration, living experience and sensibilities of the weaving and printing communities; their economic viability and market system; and their predicament in an age of transition. For the first time, this book offers a step-by-step guide for atleast 108 ways of draping the sari, through a series of line drawings and colour photographs, after revealing the rationale of the varying lengths and widths of the sari in the distinctive wearing styles of every region. Produced after twenty years of research, Saris illustrates the vibrancy and splendour of this age-old garment through extensive documentation and stunning photographs. A vivid account of how saris come into being for the lay reader and the specialist – be they textilists, designers, scholars or developers who will find this book equally engaging. Printed Pages: 276 with numerous colour illustrations. 031839

Textiles and Garments: At The Jaipur Court
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285042; Hardcover; New; New; 
The textiles of the Kachhwaha Rajput maharajas of Amber-Jaipur were among the finest ever produced in India. This book offers tribute to that remarkable artistic and material legacy. While a few thousand historical pieces survive in the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum in the City Palace, Jaipur, many now reside in important art collections across the world.This book showcases nearly 150 of the most remarkable pieces among these, which date from the early 17th century to the early 20th century. These include some of India’s earliest and finest kalamkaris as well as rare woven silks and velvets, most of which came from renowned Indian textile centres located across the subcontinent, as well as from Iran. The palace stores of Amber and Jaipur once housed not only the most spectacular royal tents of the period but also an impressive range of fine garments and accessories for the princes and other members of the royal household, many of which are showcased here for the first time. Lavishly illustrated, this book is the first comprehensive overview of the court textiles of any princely Indian state. Printed Pages: 284 with numerous colour illustrations. 107543
