A set of vibrant textile crafts was put up by the California-based company to mark the special day as independent India turned 77 on Tuesday.

The colourful doodle illustrated textiles are from 21 different regions of the country.

The doodle was created by New Delhi-based guest artist Namrata Kumar.

Speaking about her illustration, Kumar was quoted as saying on the Google Doodle website: "Indian textiles have held a profound significance in my life, thanks to my mother's profession as a textile designer. Growing up surrounded by textiles from diverse regions, I developed a deep connection to these craft forms."

"Now, presented with the opportunity to create the Google Doodle for India's Independence Day, I see it as the perfect occasion to celebrate the country's rich and diverse textile traditions," she said.

"In this artwork, each textile showcased is a testament to the collective craftsmanship of skilled artisans, cultivators, weavers, dyers, printers, and embroiderers. Together, they create these extraordinary textiles that embody the essence of India's creative spirit," she said.
