This Book has details of 20 well known embroideries from India. Though it contains a lot of information, I call it an introduction because there is so much to each type of embroidery, that this is a small brief. The embroidery documented are: the six needle embroidery from Kashmir - sozni, kani, watchikan, papier mache, rezkar, kani and tilla dori, the famous Aari and Crewel embroidery, the elegant Chikan from Lucknow, the vibrant nomad embroideries from the desserts of Rajasthan and Gujarat, Sujani the humble embroidery from Bihar, the more commercial Kantha, the picturesque Chamba Rumals, the ancient Kasuti embroidery, the lesser known but with cultural nuances Hurmucho or Sindhi embroidery, the awe inspiring Parsi Gara embroidery, the vibrant Phulkari and of course the extravagant Zardozi and its variations of kamdani and makkaish. The book is a labour of love and a treasure for those interested in hand embroidery traditions from India. Details of each embroidery if required can be got. The book also contains information on where to see examples of the embroidery in India. It also has 38 images giving details of each of the embroidery written about.
