The textiles and dress of Gujarat in northwestern India are acclaimed for their design and craftsmanship. The sophisticated weaves, dyeing techniques, intricate embroideries, vibrant motifs and embellished dress, and the communities to which many of these are unique, have been all been the subjects of this extensive documentation. Textiles and dress play a central role in the construction of a visual identity of Gujarat and its people. This book examines the "social life" of Gujaratís textiles, tracing the historical journey of cloth and dress up to the present day. It looks closely at handmade fabrics, woven, dyed, painted and printed cloth, and embroidery, and locates their place in culture and trade. It also acknowledges the role of entrepreneurship in the survival of these handmade textiles. About the Author Eiluned Edwards has been researching textiles and dress in India for 20 years and she has published widely on their production, use and circulation. She was a senior research fellow at the V&A/London College of Fashion from 2005 to 2009, and has recently joined Nottingham Trent University as a senior lecturer in Design and Visual Culture. Additional Information A part of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Shree Dhebar Sarva Seva Vikas Mandal Anjar, an educational trust established in 1992 by the Rabari community of Kachchh to provide residential schools for Rabari children. Printed Pages: 248 with 240 colour maps and 3 photographs.
