gateway to india

ABC Carpet & Home is hosting a “month long journey exporing the essence of the spirit, culture, color and artistry of India”. Judging by their website, they have put so much into this, and it sounds like it’s going to be a truly amazing month.

They’ll celebrate Indian foods as well as health and beauty traditions, but what sounds most appealing is the daily demonstrations of indigenous craft presented by celebrated artisans from India. Learn the arts of vegetable dying, stone carving, ancient weaving techniques, different embroidery methods, block printing…there’s a huge list. The work of the artists will be displayed in a gallery within the store.
Like ABC, Free People has a certain connection with India, and believes in supporting the crafts that have been handed down from generation to generation. (Just look at our store interiors) And on top of that constant relationship we share, India is also inspiration for one of our upcoming trends. More on that coming soon…
