Dr. Swanti Kulshrestha is a distinguished scholar with a profound academic journey that has shaped her into a leading authority in the field of Medieval Indian history. A graduate of Aligarh Muslim University, she embarked on her academic voyage that ultimately led her to the pinnacle of research and scholarship.

In 2013, Dr. Kulshrestha achieved her M.Phil., demonstrating her dedication to her chosen field. Her thirst for knowledge and passion for historical exploration drove her to complete her Ph.D. in 2020, marking a significant milestone in her academic career. Her specialization in Medieval Indian history provides her with a unique perspective on the rich tapestry of India's past.

Dr. Kulshrestha's research focus on the regional history of Rajasthan, anchored in meticulous documentary evidence, showcases her commitment to unearthing hidden historical gems. Notably, her work delves into the Tauji records, a treasure trove of information that encompasses Karkhanazat documents, particularly those related to costumes. Her dedication to preserving and understanding the cultural and sartorial history of the region is nothing short of commendable.

The present work is entitled 'Costumes of 18th century Amber-Jaipur the topic appears pertinent in view of costume having relevance in varied spheres. Costumes were a common feature adopted by the lay people and royalty. Living standards of different echelons of society are hence discernable in such a study. Costumes of Jaipur are splendid marvels which are redolent of rich legacy.

The associated glitter was a shared one since the Amber Raja was a Mughal noble in which capacity he conformed to most of the Mughal imperial paraphernalia. In view of unfortunate perishing of medieval costumes, the dazzling survivals of Jaipur costumes are our good fortune.

Textile Industry journeyed through simple spinning, weaving, bleaching and dyeing in 12th century, to multiplication of professions which included embellishments of various kinds. Expansion of artisanal class also accordingly took place.

Although manufacture of costumes has attracted attention of Afif and Abul Fazl, it was in 18th century Jaipur that it acquired centre stage under the patronage of Sawai Jai Singh, and his Jaipur project. His vision envisaged a properly planned city, exemplary of its kind, incorporating residential space for larger populace, including artisans. Planned market catered to the rising urban demand. The textile industry was chief beneficiary of boost in urban demand in the wake of foundation of Jaipur city.
