Inspirational India

No more showings

For over 2,000 years Indian textiles have had a major influence on fashion in Europe, in the last 400 years they have inspired British design from the Paisley pattern to liberty print. The gallery itself grew out of this Scottish/Indian connection and it is our 33rd festival. This selling exhibition is housed in a 19th-century bakehouse and pays tribute to these stunning textiles. There are wonderful examples of blockprinting, embroidery and appliqué. We have personally sourced rare tribal embroideries, outstanding blockprinted spreads and quilts, jackets and shawls. If you love textiles this is a must-see exhibition.
