Textiles of India

Farm to Fashion talk on Indian textiles history

Humorous travel talk on India.

A land of colourful contrasts, curiosities & curries served on a leaf platter.

We would like to invite you and your friends to our free, multi-media presentation on Indian Textiles. Being ex-Toastmasters with a great sense of humour, we can assure you that our presentation will be fun, lively and entertaining whilst being informative and interesting.

We will also have on display, many types of textiles (cotton, silk, cotton-silk, Tassar silk, tribal etc) and embroidery (Kantha, Chikan Kari (trust us it is not chicken curry mis-spelt!), Zardozi, Aari, tribal etc.) that we have collected during our travels so you too can view and enjoy them before or after the talk.

So please, do come along and let us take you on a virtual journey through India, it’s landscapes, its people and it’s centuries-old textiles art as we trace the Farm to Fashion trek. In return, share your passion and knowledge with us. 

When: Friday, 27th Oct 2017, 5.30pm to 6.30pm
Where: Wellington City Library, Mezzanine Floor Meeting Room
Registration opening soon!

Feedback from our previous talks


Thanks to you and Shani for the most enjoyable presentation you gave on Monday evening. I’m really interested in handicrafts and fabric, and I thoroughly enjoyed all the handicrafts I saw on my previous trip to Kerala, so it was a wonderful opportunity to see more beautiful handicrafts from other regions.

I was not disappointed!  I learnt a great deal – about the resources, methods – time honoured ones at that…
