Chair: Eva Basile
The focus on the ancient city of Varanasi on the banks of the Ganges, where the finest silk fabrics are manufactured, coalesced during textile expert Eva Basile’s recent trip to India, for the Fondazione Lisio, to visit and study the last surviving workshop where velvet is produced on the draw-loom: an ancient and versatile technology. A study day to learn about Indian textiles, compare than with their European counterparts and understand the evolution that led from the counted-thread techniques to today’s most complex digital weaving technologies.
