Description: This sumptuous volume covers embroidery from many different regions in India, ranging from elaborate floral designs of the Mughal court to vibrant folk patterns embellished with cowrie shells and mirrors.

Stunning illustrations show the richness and variety of Indian textile traditions and reveal patterns and colors that have both influenced and been influenced by Western designs, from the 16th century when the earliest surviving pieces illustrated here were sent over to Europe, right up to the present. From elaborate silk embroideries made for export to the folk and tribal embroideries used for weddings and festivals, the styles - whether for bedcovers or saris - are as varied as the subcontinent itself. The book will provide not only a wealth of inspiration to contemporary designers and embroiderers but also a visual feast for anyone with an interest in Indian arts and crafts.
