Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
This note is a compilation of my jottings taken over the years of collecting Phulkaris as I navigated the sub-categories of the magnificent textiles of undivided Punjab trying to understand them.
The note is in the form of a PDF file and may be downloaded.

A second note on the cultural paradigm of Phulkaris will follow at a later date.
Thank you so much for generously sharing this comprehensive overview! This is the best source of information on bagh and phulkari that I have seen so far. And the pieces pictured are a marvel to behold. Scrolling through this PDF is like a trip to the museum, only better.
Am so glad you liked it. I’ve been putting it together for years but it never feels complete. Today I decided to put in a few hours of work and publish it anyway – with a little nervousness. So thank you for taking the time to comment and send me this note of appreciation!
Keep collecting information and photos. I can see this growing into a fabulous book!
Excellent work and a visual feast. I’ll send an email soon with some related ideas for you to consider or ignore as appropriate. Fantastic. Steve
