Textiles of India

By Heidi and Helmut Neumann with a foreword by Rosemary Crill

This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the history and traditions of textiles throughout the Indian subcontinent.

Drawn from one of the world’s finest collections of Indian textiles, each section journeys to a different region to explore its distinct patterns and processes. Ranging from the saris of Murshidabad to the patola silks of Gujarat and the lampas weaves preserved in Tibetan temples, previously unpublished photographs reveal these works of art in their full glory. The book also delves into the roles that textiles have played over the centuries: from household and dowry textiles, to devotional textiles and spectacular masterpieces crafted for rich patrons. It is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the history of one of the world’s oldest and most diverse textile traditions.
