Tie-dyed textiles have been popular in the Indian subcontinent for centuries, and they still play an important part in the culture of Gujarat and Rajasthan. Less well-known than the zigzag 'lahariya' turbans and ornately patterned 'bandhari' saris of these areas are the tie-dyes of South India, Assam and Bengal. All these types are among the uniquely wide-ranging collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum's Indian Department, and the book illustrates 140 key pieces, in most cases for the first time. With 174 colour, 14 black and white illustrations and map.
