The scope of this book is the evolution of Sri Lankan costumes spanning from around 6th century B.C. with the first available records of the island’s dress form, to the post-independence era. This broad time span begins with hints of a pre-Vijayan culture of costumes and textiles and ends in the post independence politics and its relationship to dress both in prescription and practice. Sculptures, graffiti, paintings, literature and photographs in the book provide an engrossing glimpse of the traditions of clothing in this multi-cultural island.
