Continued from Part 1
The land of Bengal and Kerala is lush and green and most of the people wear white clothes. The Desert areas of Gujarat, Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi have intense sunburnt colours with strong linear patterns. Embroidery and mirror work is predominant here.
The rich river plains have a softer texture and milder colours with linear patterns and well-defined borders. Mostly floral patterns are used for the decorations of the cloth. In the Deccan region, the colours match the black alluvial soil of the area. Dark maroon, bottle green and turquoise blue are common colours here.March 6th, 2014 in Textiles | No Comments
