Book Description
Himachal Pradesh has a unique and fascinating heritage of arts and culture, and abounds in priceless treasures of art, to which its wood-carved temples, wall-hangings, miniature paintings, sculptures in stone and metal etc. stand a testimony. What is unique about the arts and crafts of this region is that classical and folk traditions developed side by side and from time to time interacted upon an enriched one another. The crafts of this region have been nurtured by the loving hands of peasant women. Of these domestic arts and crafts, embroidery is the most fascinating. Many years ago, some art historians shed light on a particular branch of embroidery known as Chamba rumals. The extensive travels of the author of the present volume all over Himachal Pradesh enabled her to photograph other articles of Himachal embroidery such as wall hangings, coverlets, dice boards, handfans, cholies, rosary covers, sashes, caps, book-wraps etc., which are virtually unknown to the general reader. In bringing to light these unknown and unnoticed embroidered pieces, the author has indeed done a great service. One many, without any fear of exaggeration, claim that in this respect this book is the first of its kind in the field.
