In this book, Brenda M. King challenges the notion that Britain always exploited its empire. Creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship were all part of the Anglo-Indian silk trade and were nurtured in the era of empire through mutually beneficial collaboration. King presents a new picture of the trade, where the strong links between Indian designs, the English silk industry and prominent members of the English Arts and Crafts Movement led to the production of beautiful and luxurious textiles.
