(USA, 2015)

Intricately handwoven cotton and silk, with adorning embellishments of threadwork and embroidery - each uniquely crafted in India. It is through these colours, patterns and textures that Indian designers express their individuality & creativity, in this land of contrasts and contradictions. New York-based Smita Conjeevaram has returned to India to uncover the hidden gems of her native land, exploring the artistry and ancient traditions of the textile industry, from the foothills of the Himalayas to the backstreets of Mumbai. Brought to life for the first time, Threads of India is an adventure like no other - a colorful feast for the eyes, a resounding musical treat for the ears, and an unparalleled cultural experience for the soul.
