Textile Orientalisms
Cashmere and Paisley Shawls in British Literature and Culture
By Suchitra Choudhury

Considering popular literary images of Indian and Paisley shawls as markers of fashion, class, gender, and race during the long nineteenth century, this book shows how Indian imports and influences shaped wider discussions of British literature, art, politics, and empire.
