Introduction / Rosemary Crill -- Materials and making / Steven Cohen -- Local and global: patronage and use / Rosemary Crill -- Textiles in the modern world / Davia Patel.
"This sumptuous book is a wide ranging overview of the making, design, and use of textiles from the Indian subcontinent. Focusing on individual objects, it explores in great detail the materials and techniques used in their manufacture and discusses centres of production, patronage, markets and designs. It is the first truly comprehensive book on the subject, featuring lavishly illustrated chapters interspersed with detailed analysis of unique objects of world importance, including a Kashmir map shawl, Tipu Sultan's tent, and a remarkable eighteenth-century temple hanging from South India." -- Publisher's description.
