The wide variety of textiles depicted in a single Kalpasutra set – religious Jain manuscripts – awes me.
The subject of the paintings are the royalty and therefore it is expected that they would be surrounded by royal textiles – costumes, cushions, ceiling fans etc.
A small showcase of the beauty of textiles in a Jain Kalpasutra.
If only we could tell from the 2-dimensional pictures whether the designs are prints or weaves or embroidery or embellishments!
