Indian textiles

INDIA IS ONE of the world’s most influential producers of fabric. The exhibition The Fabric of India at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (to 10th January), explores India’s multifaceted world of handmade textiles from the third century up to the present day. More than two hundred exhibits tell a story of invention, artistry and beauty, ranging from raw cotton and undyed cloths to one of the highlights, the magnificent royal tent of Tipu Sultan, the eighteenth-century ruler of Mysore.
