The embroidery of India traces its history to the region?s Mogul emperors of the twelfth century. Much of the handiwork is done in clean, well-lit studios in Mumbai, usually by men from villages outside the large city. Aurore Belkin?s photographs of these workers depict their daily labors and the careful work that has gone into each piece. A large section of close-up photographs examines the details of the embroidery. The book rounds off with a section on how the handiwork is incorporated into the latest fashion designs. This book intends to introduce the reader to an art form that is centuries old, but adapting itself to twenty-first century realities.
