There is a dearth of books in the market that can help merchandisers in understanding the basics of dyeing especially those who are not from the textile background. This book is an attempt towards fulfilling that gap. The author has tried as far as possible to keep the book away from the technical and chemical jargon and tried to present the material in the way that a layman who is introduced to this trade would understand. 
This book can be taken as a complement to his other book for the merchandisers “Who is Mangalgiri? Essential Fabric Knowledge for the Merchandisers”, also published by Amazon. Apart from merchandisers, this book is suitable for students, teachers, traders, buyers, sellers and managers. 
The first chapter “An introduction to Dyes and Classes of Dyes” clarifies the concepts related to dyeing. It introduces gently the readers to various dye classes such as direct, reactive, vat and others and their distinguishing properties. 
The second chapter “A Few Details about dye classes” takes the reader through the details of the various dye classes such as the fibers they can be applied on, the method of application and the properties related to of those dye classes. It introduces in details the various terms related to the colorfastness of dyes. 
The third chapter “Dyeing from Fiber to Garment Stage” takes the reader through the details of dyeing at various stages of textile chain, their advantages and the process of application. 
The fourth chapter “Coloring by Pigments” introduces the concept of pigments, how they are different from dyes and their various methods of application. 
The fifth chapter “Some practical notes for the merchandisers” takes the reader through the practical and commercial aspects of dyes, how to identify them in practical settings and other related issues. 
The sixth chapter “Natural Dyes” introduces the concept of natural dyes, how these are different from the synthetic dyes. Their advantages and limitations and some commonly used natural dyes.

Dokra or Dhokra Jewellery

This is an art of metal practiced by tribals of west Bengal and Orissa. The metal used is usually brass. The technique is basically a low wax casting. This technique is ages old going back to the Indus Valley Civilization.

The name for this technique comes from the Dhokra Damar Tribes in the regions of Orissa. In this technique, the core is developed using clay or wax. Then it is covered with wax and the figure is engraved on it and then covered with layer after layer of clay.

The molten metal is then poured. The wax gets melted and then comes out from the holes meant for this purpose.

New Book - Who is Mangalgiri- Essential Fabric Knowledge for Merchandisers

I take it a great pleasure to announce the arrival of my new book on Kindle. I am getting recurrent queries from readers who want the basic textile knowledge. I have conducted several sessions with store managers, buyers and merchandisers, who wished to have some basic book explaining all the relevant terms related to fabrics. I myself have struggled a lot when buying fabrics, as the terminologies are very different than those taught in textbooks of textile technology. 

It is said that merchandising is all about merchandise and the “ing” part is “right time, right place, and right cost. Thus It seems imperative that the merchandisers in the apparel trade should know about the merchandise, the building block of apparels, the fabrics.
This book is aimed at the industry professionals who are in this trade but are from a non-textile background and who want to know about fabrics. However this is equally useful for managers who are new in this trade and textile enthusiasts. 
Most of the other books dealing with fabrics are written in complex language and give more than necessary information about fabrics. In the process they go sometimes too technical and difficult to read. This book is an attempt to bridge the gap and help even novice to learn the tricks of trade very easily.
Every chapter starts with a day in the life of a merchandiser and these situations are used in this book to help learning, situations that the merchandisers learn in this trade day-in and day-out.
Special emphasis is made to cover Indian ethnic and Indian common fabrics, these are not found anywhere in this context. These fabrics have their own peculiar characteristics which make them unique to define.

I hope this book will fill a void which was long awaited to be filled.
