Bespoke India Textile Tour
The textile industry has a very special role in India. Not only can you discover hundreds of unique ancestral handicraft techniques, but it is also the best country to fully understand the modern textile supply chain. From the cotton production to the garment manufacturing to ginning, spinning, knitting and dyeing processes, every single step of garment production is present in India.
Because we think it is a fascinating way to discover a country and a unique way to deeply understand the textile supply chain or discover amazing handicraft artwork, we are offering bespoke travel packages to India with the textile industry as a central focus.
We are working in collaboration with a partner travel agency based in Paris. Mathilde Charpail who will be the organizer and guide has been living in India and fell in love with the country and its people. She has broad connexions in the Indian textile industry and will introduce you to the traditional handicraft, the conventional modern production and the environmentally and socially sustainable production.
With its millennia-old culture, India offers myriad craft techniques of embroidery, knitting, dyes and printing. Every region has its own traditional techniques and cultural heritage. Discovering this unique handicraft is a fabulous way to discover India and its regional specificities. Contact us to organize a bespoke tour of traditional handicraft.
