Book Description

This stunning catalogue showcases an extraordinary private collection of Kashmir shawls from the late 17th to the early 20th centuries. Nearly 150 shawls and fragments covering a wide variety of shawl types- from Palledar, Jamavar, dorukha, namavali, European Market style, embroidered, late Punjabi and European- are beautifuly illustrated and fully described.

 
Kashmir Shawls : The Tapi Collection presents a uniquely objective and technical approach never previously applied to this subject, with essays by renowned experts in the field. In the overview of the history of Pashmina shawls in northern India, the authors have examined their unique physical and aesthetic characteristics and shown how these shawls are related to other woven textiles from around the world. They trace the evolution of shawl design from the Mughal period through to the early 20th century, highlight the role of embroidery in Kashmir shawls and their European equivalents. Also included is a comprehensive appendix where closely related examples in other collections are compared, discussed and illustrated.
 
With over 600 colours and black and white photographs including spectacular close-up colour details so sharp that the actual weave of the shawl can be distinguished. Kashmir Shawls: The Tapi Collection is the quintessential introduction to a fascinating textile craft.
