TEXTILE TOUR TO GUJARAT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE HOUSE OF EUNICE

Accompanied trip: January 2021

January 2021 to Dates to be announced

Although focused on the textiles of the desert State of Gujarat the trip also covers some of the cultural and natural history highlights of this fascinating state.  
 
In January our classic Gujarat textile trip is being operated in conjunction with Rachel Joseph from The House of Eunice in London. The House of Eunice sources ethically manufactured textiles and Rachel describes herself as a slow fashion brand who’s aim is to source beautifully hand-crafted fabrics and transform them into contemporary clothing tailored in classic shapes with a quirky bohemian vibe.
 
We will be joined by local expert guides in Ahmedabad and Bhuj. Although the tour will mainly concentrate on the handicrafts of the region and we will be meeting artisans to gain a more in depth 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.
