Before you read about the forthcoming Textile Tour, please click on the link to my newly published book.
The book is about the culture and textiles of Kutch and focuses on a group of village communities within Kutch. The Textile Tour concentrates on this same area and the book shares the same name as the tour "THE GOLDEN THREAD".
When you click on the link you will be able to see the first part of the book and read one of the chapters. The book is abundantly illustrated with my own art work, and personally records this unique village culture over an association of over 40 years.
Because it is a personal story telling my personal recollections with the area and the changes I have seen over many years, it is of interest to a wide group of people. Not only forthcoming travellers, previous travellers, textile and craft enthusiasts will be interested, it will be of interest to many people, recording as it does the disappearance of the unique culture of this once remote area or Kutch. It is also a very beautiful book and makes a very lovely gift.
The price for the casement (which comes in a special block printed fabric in natural dyes called Ajrakh, discussed in the book) is £26.90 and the flexible book is £18.00 Both books have a metal gold thread marker. The P&P for both books is £3.
