Costumes, Textiles & Jewellery of India unravels the beautiful and sophisticated language of traditional Indian Costume, in this detailed study of the complex role played by clothing and ornamentation in Indian society. It focuses on the state of Rajasthan, one of India's most celebrated and historically rich regions. Compiled over more than fifteen years of research, this fascinating volume explores how Indian costume reflects the wearer's marital status, occupation, seasonal changes and religious commitment, serving as an essential symbol of their identity and ancestry. Sumptuously illustrated with dozens of full-color photographs, this is an essential book for all those interested in Indian style as well as those reflecting on the cultural, social, historic and technical aspects of textiles, costumes and ornamentation.
