Focusing on a variety of crafts from different parts of India, the volume seeks to trace the linkages of craft activities with the structure of living societies, organization of production, marketing, and the utilization of natural resources. Also focusing on the traditional wisdom and skills involved in crafts, traditional value system and beliefs that are expressed through the crafts, the volume evolves an integrated perspective on the crafts and craftsmanship in pluri-cultural society, where multi-ethnic mosaicness is a reality. Each of the papers here, contributed by a specialist, brings out the socio-cultural and techno-economic fabric of the selected craft. In their togetherness, the papers reflect a kaleidoscopic picture of India’s crafts and craftsmanship.
