    Nice briefing. The textile stamps not only presents evolutionary history of textile, but also presents examples how the paper based stamps themselves evolved in materialistic view. Appreciating job.

    A very fine collections of stamp,the thematic is also classic one,the section can be wool, cotton, weaving,design- motives, processing, (GANDHI) charkha ,takli, khadi etc ………


    Philatelist’s thematic imagination, it seems, is second only
    to the incomparable creativity of weavers and textile makers of
    the world.

  4. Really nice topic,we can present such articles atleast on monthly basis so that readers can get ideas.This type of articles can save the philately and this will divert people again to dying thematic collection.Again we should try to make philately only a HOBBY and hobbyyyyy rather than an INVESTMENT.

    I agree with Dr Jain.
    I am a Textile Engineer and have only three sets of Textile related (primary theme) stamps.

    Nice article – Kudo to author

    I too agree with Dr. Jain and Dinu Ji.

    But why to miss-out the Khadi stamp of Mahatma Gandhi in this article, the only Indian stamp on textiles in theme and material too!

    I eagerly await the issue of stamps on ‘Indian Embroideries’ which was expected as seen in some unofficial stamps-issue programme on a philately-related website
