This book is a collaborative effort that describes the various crafts of India through the eyes of travellers, many of who are from outside India, and all of who are crafts persons in their own right. Craft tours to various parts of India have been organised by Indebo over the last three decades, and most of them were escorted by the editors of the book.
In part a travelogue and in part memoirs, this book is unique in cataloguing various indigenous arts and crafts in the country. Accompanied by maps and photographs, this provides an unusual empathetic, intimate, and personal view of the crafts of India.
