21 February to 09 March 2025

Having operated successful Textile Tours in Gujarat over the past few years we have realised that the State of Gujarat has so much more to offer. The tribal communities residing in the state retain their unique and fascinating culture, so we have expanded our textile itinerary to allow more time to appreciate all that that is on offer in this amazing and diverse part of India. This is a journey which will take you into the heart of rural India. This year the itinerary has been refined and expanded to allow a little more time to appreciate the handicrafts of Kutch and we will take a circular route beginning and ending in Ahmedabad, which is a convenient entry and exit point for international travel and anyone wanting to extend their journey into other parts of India. Although the tour has been expanded there will still be an emphasis on the handicrafts of the region and we will be meeting artisans to gain a more indepth knowledge of textiles, especially weaving (including mashru), embroidery, ikat, bandhani and block printing. The trip will also cover other aspects of Gujarati & Kutch culture; the stunning architecture, amazing fauna and flora and the delicious & varied cuisine. The trip will offer something for everyone and will, of course, allow for plenty of retail opportunities. I have to say we have always had quite a few heavily laden bags on the journey home from our previous trips! Emma will accompany the tour and be assisted by expert local guides.
