YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-08-23 12:00:00 – Thimpu

An exhibition titled "Handmade in Rajasthan" showcasing the traditional designs of Rajasthan is being hosted in Thimpu, Bhutan curated by Indian fashion designer Prasad Bidapa which was inaugurated here today ahead of the 8th edition of the Mountain Echoes literary festival that begins tomorrow.

With collections inspired by traditional kota doria and handloom cotton saris, the exhibition celebrates the indigenous craft forms that give Rajasthan its distinctive identity and aims to present a 360-degree view of the states textiles.

Mountain Echoes presents a carefully curated segment of beautiful clothes which are handmade in Rajasthan. Each garment reflects the heritage aspect of Indian textiles and craftsmanship, creating a resonance that is luxurious and extremely collectible.

Bidapa said that from the finesse of the kota doria sari to the robust hand-woven khadi... from the exquisite precision of their hand- blocked printing to the finesse of their embroidery, this collection is an emphatic tribute to the spinners, weavers, dyers, printers and embellishers of the beautiful state of Rajasthan.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the eastern Himalayas, Mountain Echoes literary festival is an initiative of the India-Bhutan Foundation, in association with the Indian literary consultancy, Siyahi.

The festival cum exhibition will run till August 27 held at the Nehru Wangchuk Cultural Centre in Thimphu, Bhutan.
