Julie Baroah as a part of the development activities in the museums of the North Eastern State with the financial assistance of the Department of Culture, Govt. of India.

Preface

Even though Assam has a rich textile tradition, there has always been a dearth of a comprehensive book on the textile tradition of Assam. The present book grew out of the efforts of Srimanta ‘Sankaradeva Kalakshetra to collect, document, disseminate and promote the textile tradition of the region.

Then the scope of this project has grown over the years. The journey begun by unrevealing the ‘what’, ‘who’, ‘why’, and ‘how’ of the textile tradition of Assam and the significant place it occupies in the socio-cultural and economic life of the people.

Some tradition are lost and some are in the verge of being extinct in every passing day in the want of patrons and a ready market. Thus the preservation of the textile items of the various communities of the state became one of the primary objectives of Srimantna Sankaradeva Kalakshetra.

People from every community were contacted and the Srimant sankaradeva Kalakshetra team visited their habitats and collected their traditional costumes and textiles as well the unique motifs and designs with zeal and passion. Care has been taken the collection representative.

The traditional costumes of more than thirty communities of the state were covered including the baites, Bhutias, Bodos, Chowtals, Chutias, Deoris, Dimasas, Garos, Goalparias, Hajongs,Hrangkhals, Jyantias, Karbis, Khamtis, Khasis, Khelmas, Kukis, Manipuris, Mishnigs, Mizos, Nagas, Nepalis, Rabhas, singphos, Tai- Aitons, tai-Khamyangs, tai-Phakes, Tai-Shyams, tai-tyurungs, tea communities, Tiwas, Vaipheis besides the general non-tribal Assamese community.

Apart from the costumes, the collection comprises accessories like belts, bags, etc and household items like bed sheets, curtins, altar covers, blanket, etc.

And over a short period of time the textile collection of Purbajyoti Sangrahalay became voluminous numbering more than six hundred items.

Apart from these, a major part of the textile collection of the Purbajyoti Sangrahalaya belongs to Industries Musueum of the Department of Industry. Assam which grew out of the collective Zeal of several British dignitaries including Mr. T.T.S. Haley and Mrs. Haley. This includes the traditional costumes, rare designs and intricate weaving pattems and techniques which would otherwise sunk into oblivion.

Both these collection give a wide glimpse of the textiles of Assamacross time and space. Material-wise, the collection comprises textiles made of muga, paat, endi and cotton. All these arranged according to the different communities in this present book.

Srimants Sankaradeval Kalakshetra has also taken steps of both preventive and curative conservation of this collection Each and every textile item is fumigated and the curative conservation methods like darning and backing is being done as and when required.

It was decided that a complete floor of the Purbajyoti Sangrahalaya be dedicated to the textile of the region. The second floor of the Purbajyotui Sangrahalaya is a celebration of this age old textile tradition of the region. It houses the representative collection of the textile items made and use by the different ethnic groups mentioned above. Life-sized models of the various ethnic communities draped with respective traditional attires are placed in 13 dioramas depicting the context or the immediate environment of the communities Apart from these, textile pieces are displayed in several showcases.

This repository would be a ready reference source of the traditional textiles of different communities of Assam and would strive to be a great help to students, designers, researchers as well the general connoisseurs.

This book, despite all the shortcomings, that may remain even after the best of our efforts, will sincerely try to bridge the gap and bring alive the textile heritage if Assam. It would be a celebration of the weavers of Assam and given a glimpse of her culture, her world and her decorm.

The present book would not been possible without the sincere help and cooperation from various quarters.

We would like to thank the donors of the various ethnic groups of Assam who unrelentingly gave us their valuable time and helped in collecting the various costumes and textile items for the Purbajyoti Sangrahalaya. Their help and cooperation are a great contribution in building up the voluminous textile collection of this museum, identifying and documenting them.

We would like to first Museum Advisory Committee for the support it rendered for the successful execution of the book.

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.
