Textiles in Sri Lanka have a long history and a notable tradition as well. For the first time, in this special volume, Greeta Vangeyzel offers a complete, meticulously-crafted and exquisitely illustrated catalogue of the textiles, which are on display in the Colombo National Museum and also in its storage. Heads the Department of Textile and Wearable Arts, Faculty of Visual Arts, University of Visual and Performing Arts, Colombo, she offers a deep analysis of about 275 pieces of the Museum’s textiles — including flags, cloths, costumes and various ancillary items, she also tries to ascertain the identity of each piece, its function, the technique of its production, its present condition, and possible dating and provenance. Also exploring, in addition to the Catalogue, the status of textiles in ancient Sri Lanka, the author tries to spell out every possible aspect of traditional production technology – detailing weaving methods, weaves, old looms, decorative motifs, dyeing techniques, pigment making, the use of paint and printing for ornamentation, embroidery styles, and artifact categories. She also corroborates her study of traditional designs/motifs and forms of dress with the pictures emerging from historical literature, paintings and sculpture. Hard cover
