Description

Rajasthan has not lagged behind in this venture and is producing variety of hand made cloth using traditional techniques which if observed practically keep a man spell bound. The handloom fabrics which Rajasthan is producing are fascinating and exquisite in character.

The architectural splendour of places, forts and temples, the simple living religious people, their dances and music, the Bhils and Gadulia Lahars, who live in a completely different world of their own-warriors, saints and poets who had enriched the cultural and social life of Rajasthan, have found a prominent place in my previous books, I e. The temples of Rajasthan, Historic Rajasthan, Kalatmak Rajasthan etc.

This book on the handicrafts of Rajasthan is the first attempt of its kind. Rajasthan handicrafts are not only of decorative values but of utility too, having a proud heritage and continuously enriched by generations of craftsmen.
