When we think today of clothing “made in India”, it tends to be of mass-produced fast fashion and the sort of factory conditions which are uncomfortable to consider, much less endure. But that has not always been the case. In fact, the country has an artisanal textile tradition that can be traced back to the third century, and which has inspired much of the way fabrics are woven, dyed and decorated today.
Title-Oyster. Artist-Carol Shamrock. Medium-Painting - Watercolor. Description - "I love the translucent and transparent layers of water and the sea. The rough, coarse texture of the oyster shell is contrasted by the iridescent pearl inside. Exteriors can be deceiving. A metaphor of life." Via Jacqui Milton
