Indian embroidery is well known for its variety, composition, colour palette, motif, technique and its contextual significance. It forms part of our festivals, traditions, rituals, beliefs and spiritual practices. Each kind of embroidery has its own historical background and a traditional context. Over centuries of practice, the processes, methods and skills were developed which continued to evolve in specific ways through generations giving a particular character to the respective craft. The present volume includes some rare pieces from the IGNCA archives, which displays a fine insight into the handling of materials and tools and highlights different aspects of textile and embroidery traditions across India. Printed Pages: 124.
