Wrapped, Tied and Tucked

Textiles from South Asia and Expressions of the Everyday

Past Exhibition

This exhibition explored both the shared and decorative traditions of wrapped fabric in South Asia. Whole peices of fabric have been worn over the centuries as sashes, saris, shawls, turbans. These fabrics are not cut, sewn, or peiced together instead they are wrapped, tied and tucked into various forms of dress.

Installation, 'Khara Dupatta' by artist Tazeen Qayyum was on display at Bradley Museum.

Textiles on loan from the collections of The Textile Museums, Sikh Heritage Museums of Canada, The Ryerson Fashion Collection, and personal collections.
