Fabric Art Heritage of India
Fabric Art Heritage of India
Description
About the Book

Of all the Indian handicrafts, textiles form a class by themselves over which the rest of the world went into ecstasies from time immemorial.

With an enormous store of myths, symbols, imagery and inspiration from other art forms Indian textile-craft never faced a slump or stagnation. On the other hand it transcended from a craft identity to the status of an art.

With shades of classicism, folk tradition and regional flavour the rich and unrivalled fabrics of India have rightly been called exquisite poetry in colour.

Indian fabric art can be classified into three broad categories-woven, painted or printed and embroidered. Within this broad outline the present study pinpoints the historical background of some representative forms each unique in its distinctiveness.

A search for any linkage with allied art forms as well as their socio-cultural significance also provides a new perspective.

Though apparently widely dispersed in contents, they form a composite tapestry of Indian fabric art tradition and call for more scrutiny before our precious heirlooms are totally submerged in the tide of the synthetic era.

The book is enriched by illustrations of rare specimens of historical art fabrics collected from different museums in the country. Coupled with extensive references this Volume spotlights a new facet of Indian art heritage which will fascinate both the social scientists as well as the connoisseurs of Indian art and culture.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
The statue has arrived today. It so beautiful, lots of details. I am very happy and will order from you shop again.
