Last week I asked if anyone happened to have in their design library Rosemary Crill's book, Textiles from India: The Global Trade. PM responded, explaining that she recommends a different title from Crill, Trade, Temple & Court, a very comprehensive book based upon the TAPI Collection (Textiles and Art of the People of India).
This led me to the TAPI's official site. If you are a little textile-obsessed, I think you will enjoy browsing it. Included are spectacular historic Indian embroideries, woven pieces, and painted and hand-printed fabrics.
