OPIS

The interaction of peoples–indigenous tribes, invaders, traders, explorers–throughout India’s history has built a culture legendary for its variety and color. From the Rann of Kutch to the Coromandel coast, from city to village, handloom weavers, block printers, textile painters, dyers, and embroiderers continue India’s flourishing textile traditions.The authors have traveled thousands of miles in a country they know intimately to gather information and photographs of tribal and folk textiles woven for use within the family, as well as of workshop production in villages and towns. They first examine the cultural background to the textiles: the history, from the earliest civilizations to Post-Independence; the materials, including silks, cottons, and wool; and the techniques of weaving, printing, painting, and tie-dye.The second part of the book comprises a detailed region-by-region account of traditional textile production, including western India, famous for its dyed and printed cloth, appliqué, and beadwork, plus other centers in the north, south, and east, and in Sri Lanka. An array of 365 photographs, 335 in color, including over one hundred new images, provides an unrivaled visual presentation of the textiles. The reference section includes information on technical terms, a list of museums and galleries, and an updated bibliography.

Tangaliya is 700 years old traditional hand weaving technique, Legend tells us that centuries ago, in the stark landscape of Saurashtra, a Bharwad man married a woman from the weaver community amidst great opposition from both sides. The Swadeshi Movement stressed the need for use of the hand crafted Indian textiles, both to preserve the craft forms and also to protect the interests of the Indian craftsmen. After Independence, efforts were made to revive the industry.

The authors first place them in context by examining the cultural background: the history, the materials, and the techniques―weaving, printing, painting, and tie-dye. The Indian textile industry is one of the largest in the world with a massive raw material and textiles manufacturing base. Our economy is largely dependent on the textile manufacturing and trade ... The Indian textiles and apparel industry contributed 2% to the GDP, 12% to export earnings and held 5% of the global trade in textiles and apparel in 2018-19.
