A Textured Journey—Textile Exploration in Delhi

Breakaway ventures into the stories and traditions that went into the weaving of the fabric of contemporary India, the traditions that provided the world with some of the finest threads and most sought after textiles. This walk, organised by them, starts at 10:30 am at the Sanskriti Museum, which has a stunning collection of textiles and terracotta. From there it proceeds to a store, one of the few hidden gems in the city, which has the largest collection of textiles from around India. At the store, over a cup of tea, one can engage with the curators who have taken up the arduous task of collecting the diverse materials under one roof.

 

This guided tour is for free.
