India - Country of textile excellence




















The variety and abundance of handcrafted textiles in India is unmatched anywhere in the world. Travelling through the country is an adventure of discovery. Indian women still wear traditional clothing almost exclusively and provide a walking display of brilliant coloured and interestingly decorated fabrics everywhere one looks. Regional areas have their special types of weaves and embellishments giving new interest as one travels through divergent areas.
