 DESCRIPTION
spacer
This book presents a study of 'Costumes and Ornaments' of Chamba, which has attracted scholars, writers, adventurers and foreign visitors to its fascinating fold. Chamba lies in the valleys or Ravi and Chandrabhaga rivers and their tributaries in the seclusions of north-western Himalaya. In each tehsil of Chamba live the tribal communities which can be distinguished by their peculiar style and customs, costumes and ornaments and also by their folklore. The dress-style is peculiar to each community--Gaddis, Gujjars, Pangwalas, Churahis, Chambyals, Bhattiyals and Gurkhas. The chapters of present volume aptly catalogue, classify and analyse the costumes and ornaments of various communities of Chamba. The influences on their dress-style hae also been hinted at. The sophistication, quality and richness of the special woollen cloth and how it is spun and woven on the homelooms is discussed in detail. Distinction is also made in the dress-habits of various groups. Likewise the design and peculiarity of each ornament is discussed.
