Delhi has a massive exhibition centre, called Pragati Maidan. The Mela held in Hall 18 was promoting ethnic handicrafts and handloom cloth. I was infected with the fabric bug from my wife and now my sister-in-law, so I had to take a look.
I felt like a hippy in the late 1960s – “Wow, the colours, man!” Feast your eyes. If you fancy any of this stuff, let me know asap, as the mela closes on Sunday.
Oh goodness, Textile heaven! A very long time ago (it seems) I studied textile design and fell for India’s vibrancy in a very big way. What a shame I wasn’t reading WordPress when you were offering !!
Too late, Vicky. You will just have to come and see for yourself. Dilli Haat is a good place to start, especially if you’re a skilled hard bargainer.
