The first noticeable global export of Indian textiles to Europe was between the 17th and 19th centuries, when many spectacular wall hangings, robes, bed covers and dresses included Indian motifs and became an appealing novelty.
Get up close to around 200 handmade items and marvel at the technical mastery, creativity and skill of those who produced these treasures, from the earliest known textile fragments to contemporary fashion.
Highlights include previously unseen rarities, including ancient ceremonial banners, sacred temple hangings, bandanna handkerchiefs and even an impressive tent used by the infamous Tipu Sultan, ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore.
Educational and visually spectacular, this is a fascinating glimpse of a creative industry that helped change the world.
