This book lends a new dimension to the way the traditional Indian sari is looked upon, and upholds it as the epitome of holistic design with a unique creative expression. In the backdrop of Indian socio-cultural and economic ethos, the pages of this book unfold the mesmerising woven yards of the sari, the quintessential piece of garment that has draped the Indian women since time immemorial. The sari has been subjected to innumerable cross-cultural influences brought in by the rise and fall of empires that marked the history of India. Perhaps no other textile product reflects the resilience of the Indian handloom sector as the sari, a true example of fine Indian sensibilities. This volume aims to delight and enrich the aesthetic experience of the reader with information on a wide range of saris from both the past and the present.
