Description
About the Book

The real motivation for working this book came with my daughter Tara's wedding. I asked her which sarees she would like for her trousseau. It is then that I embarked on this journey. I realized that young girls today know very little about our traditional sarees or of the places which are famous for producing them. I gathered that traditional sarees are going out of vogue and young girls preface flashy modern sarees with glitter. Of course, time and tastes change, but at the same time our heritage cannot be allowed to be neglected.

Young brides should not neglect our traditional sarees just because of ignorance and so this book is written keeping them in mind. This will give them an idea as to the kind of sarees they can purchase for their trousseau. This book has ample pictorial references to make a decision. I hope this information will generate interest amongst them as well as give an impetus to our handloom weavers.

The terminology used in the book is simple. There are not too many technical details as I have not gone into the intricacies of weaving. The emphasis is on basic interesting informing that will also help in distinguishing one saree from another. The traditional characteristics of the sarees have been pointed out but at the same time it should be noted that the format of the sarees is evolving, experimentation is on and attractive features of different sarees are being continuously incorporated into other sarees.

The number of sarees covered in the book is twenty one, the traditional number of sarees normally given by a mother to a daughter at the time of marriage and considered to be an auspicious number.

I would like to acknowledge the support of my husband, Uma Shankar, who, despite his busy schedule, took out the time to accompany me to some far-flung places. I must add here that I have personally visited almost all the centres were the different types of sarees are being woven and this has taken me to the four corners of the country. It has been a very interesting journey indeed! I would also like to acknowledge the encouragement of my children Rohit. Priyanka, Tara and Bhaskar Who, by their incessant queries as to the progress of the Book, ensured that I kept on at and saw it to its conclusion.

I would also like to thank everybody else whose assistance I have taken but who are so numerous that names cannot be individually mentioned.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
