A Note on Phulkari Classification

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.

    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!
