Peonies & Pagodas Embroidered Parsi Textiles : Tapi Collection

Peonies Pagodas: Embroidered Parsi Textiles from the TAPI Collection brings Parsi embroidery into the vast literature on textiles in India. These 19th century embroideries, late-comers to a field once limited to cloth produced in India, anticipate the current era of intense globalization. Produced by Chinese weavers and embroiderers and taking inspiration from European Chinoiserie, Parsi garments became distinctive markers of the community’s identity in India. This publication will attract attention not only from textile scholars and enthusiasts, but from a broader readership intrigued by the history of global flows of art and commerce.
