Threads of Tradition – Personally escorted 21days textiles tour of India in Jan 2017
Our ‘Threads of Tradition’ tour treks the geography of textiles as it has been since ancient times. As we weave our way through Gujarat on the west, Odisha on the east and Kolkata in the north-east , we will witness for ourselves the hearts and souls, traditions and beliefs that are woven into the fabrics as we follow the Farm to Fashion journey.
