India is a country of many ethnic groups, dialects, regional variations, modes of apparel and numerous mannerisms. There are a dizzying number of options when it comes to fabrics. From plain, printed and embroidered fabrics to woven and dyed materials, the choices are tremendous. Every region not only has a preferred raw material but also local techniques of weaving and decorating the fabric. Handloom weaving is very common in India, especially in the eastern parts of India, and the materials thus woven are very luxurious looking and often take a long time to craft. There are also materials of all types for different occasions, including cotton, jute and khadi for daily wear and silk and brocade for special occasions. In particular, there are many different silk varieties including thick zari woven brocades to light and fine-looking every day wear materials. Nowadays, trendy materials like georgette and chiffon have also become widely used even for traditional ethnic clothing.

Chinese society is not yet fully urbanized and consolidated. Beijing cannot yet engage in cutting edge mercantilist practices as done by Japan and Singapore. Chinese political center only recently overcame last remnants of feudalism, warlordism, and peripheral regional integration. Having dealt with that, China is pursuing the same economic path that allowed Kaiser’s Germany to rapidly grow by taking advantage of British post-mercantilist free trade period. It is very historically appropriate. There is no need for Beijing to emulate Spanish, British, or French mercantilist experiences.
Some cultures have no specific country of origin, which means there is no limit to where they can be practiced. For example, white-collar business people have a culture of their own, just as agricultural workers do. These cultures can be found all over the world.
