Indian Romance Motto

This is the fourth year I have run the Textile tour as a combination Textile/Painting tour. Because of its success I am repeating it this year. Both Painters and Textilers benefited from each others disiplines. It adds a richness to the tour.

It is a nice time to travel in India when the days resemble good English weather. The focus is on design while taking in all the wealth of Indian culture and of course the rich variety of textile crafts. We visit major craftsmen with some hands on workshops.

The highlight of the tour is when we go on Safari and stay in the villages of Kutch, which has been very much enjoyed by the groups.
Gujarat being the most important state in India for Textiles is where we stay for 13 days of the tour. The Rajasthan extension includes beautiful Udiapur with it Lakes Palace and minature painters. The Pink city of Jaipur with different textile crafts, hand made paper and some of India's major monuments, including the Taj Mahal.
