India- visual feast……

I am so fortunate to have the opportunity travel. My favourite place is textile heaven – India. Apart from the  most extraordinary range of textiles in the world, everything a textile designer  could possibly desire is there –  India is a visual feast.

The colours are mesmerising and full of joy, texture and pattern abound – everything  from the architecture to  fragments of debris scattered on the  street or the remains of posters layers on the walls bordering major roadways, beautifully painted trucks and finely painted henna to celebrate a wedding , huge bundles of flowers at the flower markets ready to be strung together and taken to the temple. I find it so inspiring. The images below were taken in Chennai, Kolkata and Jaipur.

Orange, fuchsia, turquoise, purple joy !      Take me there………………
