The sari has been, in one form or another, the central feature of the weaving/printing tradition of India for over a thousand years. On Saturday, April 15, one of the world’s foremost historians of the sari, Rta Kapur Chishti, will present “The Sari: Magic of the Unstiched Garment,” a discussion of the design, colors and technology which make up the language of the Sari. Rta Kapur will also highlight the diversity of India through the styles and traditions across the length and breadth of India.
Rta Kapur Chishti is the co-author and editor of the ‘Saris of India’ and ‘Handcrafted Indian Textiles –Tradition and Beyond.’ She has been involved with research and development of handspun-hand loomed textiles and is founder of the “Sari School.”
