Textile Tidbits: Learning to Weave the Kutchi Way

Travels in Textiles - Learning to Weave the Kutchi Way

Today’s Textile Tidbit is a link to a textile designer and researcher’s blog post all about her experience of learning to weave in Kutch, Gujarat. The Travels in Textiles blogger spent three weeks in India last December learning about all the steps involved in the process of weaving traditional textiles and it’s a fascinating read. Click here to read her blog post.

Somaiya Kala Vidya is the organisation that offers courses in traditional textile crafts in Kutch, including weaving, block printing, batik, embroidery and many others. It looks like a fabulous place to learn, surrounded by expert artisans. I think I would like to go for a whole year and study everything!

  1. A great post! Yes – it’s makes one want to go to Gujarat (right now) and just focus on one thing!

    but, of course, my results wouldn’t be anything like that in the picture!
