Craft an experience from the warp and weft of India’s handmade heritage.
At Breakaway, we pride ourselves on offering an unmatched range of experiences and interactions via our Textile Trails. Our tapestry of experiences covers the country and lets you discover the warp and weft of India’s proud textile and handicraft traditions. And while each experience ensures you meet the creators of these handmade rarities and hear their stories, it also gives you the chance to take one of them home. For that, you only need to breakaway.
Shilpa has led perhaps India’s flagship traditional clothing brand to renown across the country and also co-founded one of India’s most respected arts and crafts e-commerce brands. She uses the relationships woven in her career to embroider a tapestry of textile trails that weave their way across India’s most famous and best loved fabrics and places.
Our textile and craft trails range from short trips across one or two cities to long explorations spanning entire states but they all have one thing in common – they serve rare, hand-spun gems. Chats and interactive visits with textile design experts and scholars and local artisans enhance your understanding of the various weaving and printing techniques and historical context as they shape India’s contemporary textile culture. Reflected in the art, framed in old forts, and sold in the local markets, these experiences let you wrap yourself in India’s hand-spun heritage.
From visits with master craftsmen to shopping sprees at exclusive collections via viewings of some of India’s best private collections, every trail is studded with experiences that can only be savoured one way. By breaking away, of course.
