Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>The sari has been, in one form or another, the central feature of the weaving/printing tradition of India for over a thousand years. Covering the styles and traditions across the length and breadth of 12 Indian states this book is a documentation of design and all that supports it socially, culturally and economically. Saris of India is a vivid and exhaustive overview of the structures, design, colors and technology which make up the language of the sari.</p>
