The volume views the history of the Indian silk saree, a fabric enmeshed with Indian culture and soaked in history. A well-illustrated book with spectacular pictures of Indian silk sarees of different regions of India, it gives a description of the saree culture, state by state. It deals with the weaving, dyeing and printing of the Indian saree, and the art of draping it with particular emphasis on the Indian wedding sarees in silk. Presenting the author, Beena Kannan’s interaction with ordinary people, the artists and the craftspeople and travelling with her on her saree-scouting journeys, it discusses saree embroidery and motifs, variety of sarees and their craftsmanship.
