IKAT Textiles of India

During my last visit to Chennai, India, I happened upon an exhibition hosted by the Tamilnadu Handloom Corporation called "IKAT of India".  I have always loved Indian textile exhibitions for their variety and diversity. I made it a point to see the exhibition,  took pictures of the some of the fabulous materials on display, and bought a handprinted scarf for myself. Below are the photos I took at the exhibition (some of the photos are a little dark mainly because of the florescent indoor lighting). Enjoy!






























I bought this for myself
