calico textile museum

Wish I had more photos to share from the Calico Textile Museum – photography is unfortunately not allowed inside the exhibits.

The museum itself is incredible – a massive restored haveli that houses hundreds of ancient and antique fabrics, clothing, and tapestries from India’s rich past.  Even through some of the pieces are hundreds of years old, the colors are vivid and the needlework is immaculate.

If you’re interested, you can click through to see some photos via the museum’s website here.
