The Traditional clothes of the states in India speak volumes about their cultural heritage. Despite the brilliance of the fabrics and their eco-friendly production process, Indian thread and embroidery works are becoming extinct. To mark the occasion, the Department of Posts issued a set of four Miniature Sheets. India has a rich textile tradition. It has a wide range of garments of different designs manufactured as compared to other countries of the world. The speciality of weaving textiles in each region is developed on the basis of local, and cultural influences. Indian clothing is best suited to the Indian climate. And the clothing is often worked with intricate embroidery. The origin of Indian clothing is traced to the Indus Valley Civilization. The people of that civilization used domestic cotton for their clothes.
