Product Description

 

 

 

This book showcases nearly 150 of the most remarkable pieces among these, which date from the early 17th century to the early 20th century. These include some of India’s earliest and finest kalamkaris as well as rare woven silks and velvets, most of which came from renowned Indian textile centres located across the subcontinent, as well as from Iran. The palace stores of Amber and Jaipur once housed not only the most spectacular royal tents of the period but also an impressive range of fine garments and accessories for the princes and other members of the royal household, many of which are showcased here for the first time. A lavishly illustrated survey of the entire Kachhwaha corpus, this book is the first comprehensive overview of the court textiles of any princely Indian state.”
