PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This dazzling array of Indian textiles from one of the world's most important and eclectic private collections contains many images never before published. A treasure trove of Indian textiles, this book ranges from 14th century trade cloths found as far away as Central Asia, Japan, Bhutan, and Afghanistan to Indian folk textiles and costumes. A passionate collector since his childhood days, Karun Thakar discusses the roots of his passion in an essay, telling how he became interested in textiles and explaining what he looks for when buying an object. Additional essays by world renowned experts offer historical and cultural perspectives on various types of textiles, their production and use. Gorgeous illustrations of Kashmiri shawls, embroidered temple hangings, silk brocade and wedding costumes reflect the intricate beauty of each piece and the expert handicraft that has been practiced for centuries. Anyone interested in textiles, Indian and Asian art, interior design, or cultural history will find inspiration in this beautiful volume. Hardcover, 224 pages
