The subject of this monograph is Indian loom typology and the fibres used for weaving with special emphasis on silk. The traditional knowledge system of spinning, weaving, dyeing and loom development are anchored in our roots as can be noted from the history of the trade in Indian textiles. The term fibre used in the heading covers all fibres traditionally used in weaving in the subcontinent. The aspect of loom typology is taken up first as it is at this level that the contextual subliminaity of the loom in India comes into play. Extensively illustrated, printed on art paper, this work will be of immense interest and value to students of design, teachers, researchers, art historians, textile/art collectors, ethnographers and also to the textiles trade and exports.
