Abstract

The study was conducted to observe the use of textiles in the daily life of ancient Gandharan people. The relief panels and sculptures of Gandhara depicted their taste for upholstery and mattresses. Beautifully decorated bed sheets and pillows were commonly used by them.The cultural links between the present and past could be easily bridged by studying the salient features of Gandharan textile items of daily use. Moreover, the beautiful motifs used in their bed sheets can be an asset for future designers.
