The interactive talk will attempt to showcase the great textile traditions of the country and highlight the truly representative of the various forms and stylistic variations that abound in our country.
Traditional poetry in India likens life itself to cloth on a loom. It is no surprise then that textiles have been had such an intrinsic and perhaps intimate relationship within the Indian cultural, spiritual and economic context. Indian textiles have captured the imagination of art historians and connoisseurs alike and generate tremendous interest. While some styles and weaving techniques have disappeared over the years, others have seen resurgence and renewed vigour over the last few years where tradition has taken the step forward to explore newer vistas. India with its breathtaking and varied textile traditions is in the enviable position of having practically all the styles of weaving, printing, embroidery still intact. The idea is to showcase some of the stunning examples of these works as part of commitment towards the great heritage of Indian textiles and crafts which employs nearly 50 million people in India.
