Other Textile Art
Nomadic Textile Embroideries: Hovering around the western Indian regions of Rajasthan and Gujarat and foraying further west into Central Asia; one finds a cornucopia of nomadic textile embroideries. These textiles take various shapes, from door-hangings to throws, to more decorative wall art pieces.
Other Textile Art: India has the richest living textile tradition in the world, and textiles not only form an essential utilitarian part of our clothing, but also lend themselves seamlessly to art practices originating in various ‘craft’ or weaving traditions. Kalamkari from South India, Cross-stitch panels from Chettinad, Kantha from Bengal are just a few examples of this form.
