Issue 77 The Chakra Issue
2017 is India’s 70th anniversary of independence, and this issue celebrates the subcontinent’s longstanding connection with textiles. We journey to the banks of the Sabarmati river where the air is perfect for spinning some of the world's finest thread, we explore the politics of the sari, and we visit a family of carpet weavers followed by a village of traditional wood block carvers. From the architectural resilience of tarpaulin to appliqué and dyeing in Ahmedabad, Indian culture is embedded with textiles in every aspect of contemporary life.
