INDIAN CARPETS (A Hand-Knotted Heritage)
INDIAN CARPETS (A Hand-Knotted Heritage)
Description
About the Book:

"His Majesty has caused carpets to be made of wonderful varieties and charming texture…"
Wrote Abul Fazl of the Emperor Akbar in the 16th century.

The high technical accomplishments of classical carpets and their luxurious materials astonished the world; today, more than four centuries later, India remains a major producer of fine quality hand-knotted carpets.

This book in five parts briefly looks at the history and crafts of the carpet in India and is design inspirations, from the early Persian influence to the evolved Indian style. The main production centers are also viewed. Apart from the pile carpet, an account of durries, their antiquity, decline and revival, is also given.

Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs from a number of sources, from museums to weaving villages, this book is a glimpse of one of the most celebrated of Indian textile arts.

ETERNAL INDIA SERIES:
The cultural expression of India is a varied in style as it is in form and this is due partly to the size of the land, its myriad religions, races, beliefs, customs and its many layered history.

The series combines pieces of this splendid mosaic with an eye on the apparent as well as the hidden nuances; on tradition and continuity as well as the winds of change.

She has edited and produced books on aspects of Indian life and culture as well as art catalogues and written on subjects as far apart as restaurant food, travel and ancient India.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
