India:  Textiles, Culture & the Raj India:  Textiles, Culture & the Raj
India is a country that endlessly fascinates:   From its turbulent history  to  its breathtaking architecture ;  from its extreme wealth, and at times,  challenging poverty.  However, mostly  it is a country where always you will feel alive and completely scintillated by the ever shifting environment.

This is a tour for those who truly want to immerse themselves into the long held traditions of India: its storytelling, its weavers and textiles, its spirtuality, and its many different cultures.   

We will start in the incredible city of Kolkata enjoying exclusive experiences including lunch in the home of an interior designer and art consultant, where you will experience a living art gallery; explore the textile industry with a local expert focusing on batik and Kantha embroidery as well as dipping into some delicious dining. 

Then to Varanasi where we will experience the creation of famous silk brocades  and textiles produced by local weavers.  We will immerse ourselves in the spiritual side of this incredible city, experiencing the Ganges in the evening and at sunrise as well as  exploring the city's culture through its food and design.  

It is then time to fly to Agra and visit the exquisite Taj Mahal and Agra Fort and explore city on foot;   and then to Lucknow  where we will dip into the abode of a legendary film maker; explore incredible architecture and immerse ourselves into the delights of a private trunk show with some very famous designers...

When we head to Shimla prepare yourself for storytelling and exploring the romance and turmoil of the time of the British Raj, hearing these stories first hand from a local historian and author who contributed to the production of 'Indian Summer' recently shown on the BBC.  

This is a tour that will delight the senses.  There is so much to this extraordinary getaway that you need to check out the itinerary to see just how fabulous it is.
