The Fabric of India

This illustrated talk is a preview of the major exhibition of the same name to be held at the Victoria and Albert Museum this autumn. It is the first exhibition to give an overview of the whole spectrum of Indian textiles, including their materials and techniques, their use and patronage, their global trade and their place in India today.

Dr Rosemary Crill is Senior Curator (South Asia) in the Asian Department of the Victoria & Albert Museum, and specialises in Indian textiles and dress and in Rajasthani painting. She is the author, editor and co-editor of many books and catalogues including Indian Embroidery, Textiles from India: the Global Trade, Chintz: Indian textiles for the West and The Indian Portrait 1560-1860. She is the Senior Curator of the forthcoming Fabric of India exhibition.
