Holiday Overview

The traditions of Indian textile crafts are some of oldest and diverse in the world. Gujarat has a rich cultural history, and the state produces a wide range of textiles that are intricately linked to its past. Join Mandy Shaw on a discovery of the textiles and crafts of Gujarat, see examples of local craftsmanship in embroidery, block printing, tie-dye, weaving and more.
