The Fabric of India to open in Cincinnati, Ohio

V&A exhibition, The Fabric of India, will make its US debut at Cincinnati Art Museum, Ohio, on October 19, 2018 and will run until January 6, 2019.

It is the first major exhibition to explore the dynamic and multifaceted world of handmade textiles from India, spanning from the 3rd century to the present day. The exhibition showcases the finest examples from the V&A’s world-renowned collection together with masterpieces from international partners, leading designers, and additions from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s own outstanding permanent collection.

Focusing on the historical and ongoing importance of textiles to the economy of India, the exhibition traces the origins of India’s natural plant fibres and dyes, through to its place as the world’s largest exporter of fabrics across the globe.
