The Fabric of India at the V & A museum, London, influencing Indian wedding decorations.

The Fabric of India – now on at the V & A

London’s Victoria and Albert Museum has just opened a three-month long exhibition showcasing India’s amazing hand-made textiles through the centuries, the Fabric of India exhibition.

 

It’s a reminder of the wealth of creativity, craftsmanship and design that our Indian heritage is renowned for across the globe. The exhibition shows off fabric and textiles from the third century right to the present day, where today’s generation of designers are adapting traditional techniques fit for the 21st century.

 

If you think of Indian weddings in this context you might think of the outfits that get worn on the day. But for us, it inspires new ideas for Indian Wedding decorations, everything from the backdrops to Mehndi decorations, and reminds us of the simplicity of the chair covers and sashes.

 

Fabric and its texture and beauty can really lift your wedding decorations because they offer a richness and depth that really stands out in a world of straight lines and hard edges. It can soften a look. It can create a feeling of opulence. Of heritage. That’s the versatility of fabric that means it shouldn’t be under-estimated when you’re planning your wedding décor.
