And meanwhile, parallel with the Delhi show, we have an exhibition at the malkha shop in Hyderabad of the Gongadi, the blankets made by local shepherds from the wool of local sheep. Elana Dickson, an internationally known textile designer has collaborated with Anthra, a local agency, to bring these fabulous craft textiles to the attention of city-dwellers who may not know of the treasures that still continue to be produced by skilled artisans in our rural settings. A gongadi loom will be featured, and the makers will be there at both opening and closing events... details will follow in later blogs, but please mark your calendars:

The show will run from Thursday October 13 to Saturday October 15, 10.30 am to 7 pm.
