Event Description : EXHIBITION "The Rafoogars and the Journey of a Shawl"

This exhibition and workshop presents rafoogari, the traditional skill of darning applied in the maintenance and preservation of precious textiles by the rafoogar communities across India. Said to be synonymous with the repair of intricately designed Jamawars/’Kani’ shawls and robes of Kashmir, these shawls, along with Islam came to India from Central Asia, and have since been refined by local cultural mores through a process of appropriation and acculturation, pushing technique to its creative limit.

Collaboration: Priya Ravish Mehra; and Craft Revival Trust

On Thursday 12 April from 17:00 to 18:30
