Born in Italy, Paola Manfredi has lived and worked in India for over thirty years thus developing her interest in textile exchanges between the East and the West. She has worked with communities to promote the excellence of South Asian craftsmanship, particularly in Aary, Chikankari from Lucknow, and Nakshi Kantha from East Bengal (today Bangladesh).
Paola's book combines her scholarly learning retold through anecdotes which bring to life the history of this unique craft tradition! This talk is a must-attend for textile buffs, we look forward to seeing you!
