The Registry of Sarees is a Research and Study Centre with a interdisciplinary approach that enables design, curatorial and publishing of projects in the area of handspun and handwoven textiles. We are home to two collections of South Asian textiles, one representing the most comprehensive study of Khadi ever undertaken (Meanings, Metaphor) and an eclectic survey of textile traditions from the region (Red Lilies, Water Birds). Constantly taking inspiration from this rich material resource, we pursue and enable interdisciplinary enquiries culminating in design, curatorial and publication projects. The center ensures the long-term preservation of these fragile works of art by maintaining suitable environmental conditions and other periodic interventions, alongside providing a space for research through our reference library dedicated to the study of textiles, art, culture and design.
We are ably guided by a community of scholars, curators, designers and other practitioners engaging in the study of heritage textiles as they relate to contemporary culture. Our Research and Study Centre and reference library are open to the public via an appointment.
