This tour will immerse you into Indian culture, and in particular textiles. I'm also a photographer, so if you wish I will give you guidance with your photographs.
The photo opportunities are amazing and to be honest, I think that India is the only place where people ask me to take photos of them!!
Our Guide is one of the top guides in India and is also a Textile expert, he has a wealth of knowledge about the textiles and will lead us through the alleyways of embroidery, quilting, fabric design, printing, dyeing and the history of Textiles.
The technique of stamping a pattern on cloth with engraved wooden blocks using pigments, dyes, resists and mordants to achieve a coloured design. The technique began (c. 2000-1300 BCE). and is still used today. We will introduce you to young artists taking the technique to new fashion heights.
It's so labor intensive and we really have no idea how its made until we experience it.
