About this title:

Synopsis: For centuries India has been renowned for the diversity, quality and richness of its embroidered textiles. This book explores the traditions and development of Indian embroidery techniques, showing how they can provide inspiration for Western embroiderers today. An introduction to the historical development of Indian textiles, including the influences of local and regional traditions, is followed by chapters exploring individual techniques, such as quilting, counted-thread work, shisha (mirror) work, metal work, beading, applique and patchwork. A useful list of suppliers and embroidery collections to visit completes the book.

From Booklist: Detailed instruction is not Morrell's forte. Instead, as befits her scholarly training, she traces the origins and evolution of a variety of Indian stitcheries, noting influences from many parts of the globe. Included in her discourses are examinations of traditional embroideries, from applique and quilting to white work and counted threadwork, as well as the fabric embellishment most associated with Indiamirror or shisha work. Also included are a verbal description of the how-tos, occasional illustrations of the actual stitches, and color photographs of finished garments and accessories. Best consult general dictionaries of stitchery or specific books on Far Eastern embroidery for general education. Barbara Jacobs
