Description

Mary Dusenbury, curatorial associate, organized this show that offered a rare opportunity to see some of the splendid textiles from India in the Spencer's permanent collection. With a tradition of textile making that spans four millennia, the intricate designs and vibrantly dyed fabrics o India have had a tremendous impact on the textile industries and fashion around the world. Dungaree, chintz, and khaki are only a sampling of contemporary textile terms that have their roots in Indian fabrics.
