This brief introductory history of Indian dress is based on examples that are authentic to the last detail. The author has given weight to depictions of humans rather than divine personages all in order to establish what the ancestors of today's Indians actually wore in real life.
Author's conclusions and carefully drawn sketches encapsulate the better documents later periods, while challenging some assumptions about earlier periods based on modern conventions of dress.
