Embroidery, the decoration of cloth with design by needle and thread, is an art dating back to antiquity. Indian embroidery designs are as vivid and varied as the culture of India. Each region and each sect has developed its own embroidery style, technique and pattern over the centuries.

The book apart from briefly tracing the history of this art, enumerates various styles prevalent in different states of India.
