Evolution of costumes and textile began the day Eve strategically covered herself with the first fig leaf. History testifies that man has been inventing and creating costumes through the ages reflecting the influence of changing times, social life, work style and even seasons. Reciprocal cultural exchanges had affected the remotest tribal belts and the meanest hamlest as far as costumes are concerned. However, very little of the old textile exist these days. Textile have been produced in India since times immemorial. Our craftsman had produced textiles of rare quality and costumes of stunning variety which compete with the best in the world at any given period of history. India being a vast sub continent of stroangly constrasting physical features, cultural affinities, political history, religious beliefs and climatic conditions presents a great platform for the flight of imagination to the costume designers.
