Handmade in India is a unique compendium that probes into all aspects of handicrafts—historical, social and cultural in fluences on crafts, design and craft processes, traditional and new markets, products and tools—unravelling a wealth of knowledge. Based on extensive field work and research, Handmade in India maps out the regional craft clusters identified across the country on the basis of prevailing craft-work patterns. Some of these are renowned, like the pinjrakari and khatumb and wood work of Kashmir, blue pottery of Jaipur, chikankari embroidery of Lucknow, the kannadi or metal mirrors from Aranmula, chappals or footwear from Kolhapur, and the bamboo craft of Assam. Other, lesser known, crafts like the paabuor stitched boots from Ladakh, jadupatua paintings from Jharkhand, the making of Kathakali and Theyyam headgear, khadi or tinsel printing in Ahmedabad have also been described in striking detail. The first-of-its-kind ever attempted, this volume with stunning photographs will be a tremendous resource for product and textile designers, artists, architects, interior designers, collectors, development professionals and connoisseurs alike.
