Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

HALI Article on The Magnificent Perak Headdress of Ladakh

A glimpse of my article appearing in Spring 2014 issue of HALI – the world’s leading magazine focusing on Textile Arts:  “Heading off evil at high altitude” on the Perak Headdresses from India.

Am happy that I could draw the attention of textile aficionados around the world to this stunning but little-known traditional costume art from India!




This is a part-culmination of the Blue Veil Project (Click here for details)

The balance of the subject matter will be published eventually as a coffee-table book  or ….

Peraks from The Wovensouls Cllection may be seen here.

    I have never seen such a beautiful headdress of turquoise. Is this just worn for ceremonial occasions and for what ceremonies if so
