Críticas:

[E]dited by one of the best known Indian names in the field of textiles-Jasleen Dhamija-is a wonderful window to the tradition of fabrics, the creation of which was once considered an act of worship. The Hindu, July 24 2014

Reseña del editor:

Sacred Textiles of India delves into the mystical associations of Indian textiles, from traditional Gujarat torans meant to welcome and guard the threshold to ikat weavings implying the ability to resist the world's illusionary temptations. One of the most foundational traditions in man's technical and creative evolution, textiles are embedded in South Asian philosophical concepts, myths, practices of worship and ceremonial rites of passage. Essays by prominent scholars explore the general significance of textiles as well as the more specific roles of cloth in particular geographic regions. Those mesmerized by the beauty of Indian fabrics will enjoy this study of the deeper conceptual importance of textiles and its beautiful accompanying images.

Fabrics play a vital role in the rituals and ceremonies that mark every stage of religious, cultural and social life in India. Traditionally, the creation of a textile is considered an act of worship, and the wearing of sacred cloths is an important aspect of rites of passage, invoking the strength of the creative act as well as divine protection. The book begins with an overview of the ritual importance of textiles through the major religions of India and an exploration of the cult of ikat, the magical textile common to many cultures of the world. Subsequent articles present pioneering research on the Islamic and Buddhist textiles of Ladakh; the ritual garments, sudreh and kusti, of the Parsi Zoroastrians; the representation of sacred trees in the kantha embroidery of West Bengal and Bangladesh; the Hindu, Islamic and Christian traditions of Goa including the use of carved ivory combined with embroidery, unique in the world; and the significance of door-hangings or torans of Gujarat and Rajasthan, which contrast vividly with the region s desert landscape.
