Focusing on over 20 textiles from the British Museum’s collection, this book explores the wonderful folk embroidery of India and Pakistan – in particular the domestic work made by women for their own dowry or family. Illustrated in full and in detail, these richly decorated items – costumes and household textiles -should provide designers at all levels with inspiration for new and unexpected ways for using colour and pattern in their own work.
