India Sutra: On The Magic Trail Of Textiles
India Sutra: On The Magic Trail Of Textiles
Description
From The Jacket

Berenice Ellena has worked as a clothes and costume designer in Paris, Venice, Delhi and Srinagar. She has taught the history of costume, and has also organized various exhibitions in French museums as designer and curator. Supported by Hermes, she spent some years researching textiles all around India. Her writings and photos originate from her meetings with craftspeople, textile technicians, poets and Indian scholars. Her work depicts a living art endangered by modernity.

Back Of The Book

India Sutra is a tribute to the skills of Indian craftsmen, and offers a discovery of textile routes in today's India. In revote villages, ancestral techniques help create countless varieties of fabrics adorned with symbolic designs, embroidery or by precious vegetable dyes. In this universe where all embellishment techniques continue to exist side by side, beauty itself lies in the heart of the workshops where day after day the canvas of the future is woven with fervour.

This book is a tool for designers and textile lovers, presenting all types of weaves and decorative techniques. It leads the reader from the material and reality towards myth and ritual, and yet presents the advantages of a practical guidebook. It includes reliable maps, a comprehensive address book, and as such is an excellent vademecum for textile adventurers outside and all around India.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
