Join quilt collector, designer and author Geeta Khandelwal for an introduction to the world of Indian textiles. Across rural Maharashtra, women make quilts called godharis. Fashioned from scraps of weathered saris, godharis speak volumes about the hard work and artistic expression of the local women. As access to synthetic sari fabrics becomes more cost-effective, the survival of this age-old craft is in question. With support for the craft, the traditional godhari may well be adapted and modified to meet modern needs.
AsiaStore Sale Event featuring Geeta Khandelwal’s book and an exclusive collection of handmade quilts will follow the lecture.
