Through the rich oral tradition of story-telling, the museum aims to preserve and hand down design stories to future generations to relive their grandmother’s legacy.
Textiles of India are clearly a great example of unity in diversity. The museum would preserve and showcase antique textile designs and heirlooms owned by people across India. Most Indians have an emotional connection with sarees, be it holding their grandmother’s pallu or sitting on their mother’s lap. The hidden stories on the weaving techniques and designs inspired from the weaver’s environment like animals, flowers, jewellery and food are very enlightening. The design and weaving techniques and colours varied according to the region, climate and culture of the place. The migration of the weaving communities, trade and commerce across borders led to assimilation and evolution of new patterns, adding beauty to the textiles. Through the rich oral tradition of storytelling, the museum aims to preserve and hand down these stories to future generations to revive or even relive their grandmother’s legacy.
