The Fabric of India

The Fabric of India will be the first major exhibition to explore the rich and fascinating world of handmade textiles from India. We will be gathering together some of the finest and most fascinating textiles from the V&A and collections across the world to illustrate the processes, history, and politics associated with these incredible objects. The journey from idea to exhibition is long, and often challenging, but also incredibly exciting. It requires the commitment and enthusiasm of many people: from curators, coordinators and conservators to designers and digital editors. This blog brings together stories from across the exhibition team to track the highs (and lows) of the exhibition research and making process. We will also be inviting team members and guest contributors to share their thoughts on what fascinates and inspires them about Indian textiles. The exhibition, The Fabric of India will be at the V&A from 3 October 2015 to 10 January 2016.
