INDIA STREET: Part 2 & 3

This ongoing project explores Scotland’s relationship to the indigenous crafts of India still in production today, and tells the story of The United Turkey Red Company. I am one of 7 designers who has been invited to explore the archives, and respond aesthetically, and with hindsight, to the fabrics, their colours, patterns and motifs.

Part 2 of the project involved us being based in Ahmedabad, India for 2 weeks, exploring and developing our designs alongside the artisans of the the block printing studios. Part 3 concluded with a new product range that promotes sustainability of craft and international collaboration.

Part 1 of the project can be seen here.
