Exhibitions Online – Indian Trade Textiles

360 virtual reality Tour (3D + Photo)


In the 17th and 18th centuries, millions of yards of cloth a year were produced in the Indian subcontinent and traded to Asia, the Islamic lands, and Europe. Patterns of Trade: Indian Textiles for Export 1400 – 1900 explores the significant influence of Indian cloth on early trade and later textile design through over seventy Indian trade textiles from the Asian Civilisations Museum’s collection. This exhibition marks the first time that a major part of this important collection has been shown to the public.
