An Exhibition to Look forward to: The V&A’s “The Fabric of India”

Welcome to our blog on the V&A’s forthcoming exhibition The Fabric of India. It’s now a year away, but preparations are well underway for what promises to be not only a beautiful and dramatic show but also a major landmark in the study and display of the subject. Focussing on hand-made textiles, the exhibition will include over 200 objects, with over two-thirds coming from the V&A’s own collection, and the rest made up of loans of key objects from public and private collections in India, America, Europe and the UK. It is curated by Rosemary Crill and Divia Patel, both of the V&A’s Asian Department.
