News - Of Textiles And Tales
by Life Positive
Textiles with narratives are seen across the country and their range varies from painted and printed textiles to woven and embroidered pieces. These textiles tell us multiple stories and represent myths sacred to indigenous communities across the country.
Indian textiles: rich with myths and legends Many have religious and ritual value in the cultures they come from whereas others are folk and tribal textiles that carry narratives of their origins and legends of their ancestors and gods. Called Mantles of Myth, the three-day conference will involve textile experts, writers, poets, musicians, performers, narrators, who will bring together the diverse riches and variegated forms of story telling. The conference will provide a forum for discussions, debate and interaction to focus on how essential and integral it is for us to protect and preserve our folk lore, literary traditions and the colours and threads of our culture. There will be sessions with key personalities such as mythologist Devdutt Patnaik, author William Dalrymple, heritage experts Jaya Jaitly and Laila Tyabji, and fashion designers such as Wendell Rodricks.
