This book presents a comprehensive history of handloom weaving industry in India to challenge and revise the view that competition from machine-produced textiles destroyed the country’s handicrafts as claimed by historians until recently. It shows that skill-intensive handmade textiles survived the competition on a large scale, and that handmade goods and high-quality manual labour played a positive role in the making of modern India. Rich in archival material, The Crafts and Capitalism explores themes such as the historiography of craft technologies; statistical work on nineteenth-century cotton cloth production trends; narratives of merchants, the social leaders, the factory-owners; tools and techniques; and, shift from handloom to power loom. The book argues that changes in the handloom industry were central to the consolidation of new forms of capitalism in India. An important intervention in Indian economic history, this book will be useful to scholars and researchers of Indian history, economic history, colonial history, modern history, political history, labour history and political economy. It will also interest nongovernmental organizations, textile historians, and design specialists.

While cotton was a world-changing good in the early modern period, for producers, merchants, and consumers, it was but one of many different fabrics. This volume explores this dichotomy by contextualizing cotton within its contemporary culture of textiles. In doing, it focuses on a long, under-researched region: the German-speaking world, particularly Switzerland, which transformed into one of the most prolific European regions for the production of printed cottons in the eighteenth century. Sixteen contributions investigate the (globally entangled) history of Indiennes, silk, wool, and embroideries, giving new insights into the manufacturing, marketing, and consumption of textiles between 1500 and 1900.

The Indian way of life celebrates products made with the help of simple, indigenous tools by craftspeople from a strong fabric of tradition, aesthetic and artistry. The range of Indian handicrafts is as rich and varied as the country's cultural diversity. A tour of India's craft repertoire, Handmade in India is a guide to the arts that reflects the diversity of the country, its culture and the ways it nurtures creativity and ingenuity. This encyclopedic reference captures the traditions that enrich the day-to-day lives of Indian people, as well as provide a livelihood for generations of craftspeople. Handmade in India explores all aspects of handicrafts-historical, social and cultural influences on crafts; design and craft processes; traditional and new markets; products and tools-revealing a remarkable wealth of knowledge. Handmade in India is the result of extensive field work and research. The authors map out regional craft clusters identified across the country according to the prevailing craft-work patterns. It is closely woven with images to reveal the wide array of crafts in India. Some of these are well known, like the woodwork of Kashmir, blue pottery of Jaipur, embroidery of Lucknow and the bamboo craft of Assam. Other, lesser-known crafts, such as stitched boots from Ladakh and tinsel printing in Ahmedabad, are also described in striking detail. The close study of various crafts enables the reader to discern subtle, sometimes unusual, differences in the same craft practiced by distinct regions or communities-such as tie-resist dyeing, which is called bandhani in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, but bandhej in Rajasthan. The first of its kind ever attempted, this beautifully illustrated guide will be a tremendous resource for product and textile designers, artists, architects, interior designers, collectors, development professionals and connoisseurs alike. Handmade in India will also be a useful reference for libraries interested in Indian crafts and culture, and organizations that work with the crafts sector in India.
