About the Event

Breakaway ventures into the stories and traditions that have created the fabric of contemporary India and provided the world with some of the finest threads and most sought after textiles.


Start your day in Ahmedabad with a curated walk around the world-renowned Calico Museum of Textiles, archiving textiles from the Mughal and Provincial Courts with a display of intricate dyeing, weaving, printing and embroidery techniques from across India.


Visit a store which empowers women artisans, practices sustainable ways of garment production and promotes conscious consumerism. Get introduced to traditional Indian embroidery techniques like Aahir embroidery, Rabari embroidery, etc.


Go back to Gandhi era & see how cotton was spun & contributed to the Indian Freedom Movement. Interact, observe & learn the art of spinning from a master weaver whose father initiated Gandhiji & taught him to make his own clothes on the spinning wheel.


Meet the Chitaras, a handful of artists that still make hand painted Pachedis - a kalamkari art form traditional to Gujarat.


During this trail you see for yourself the love, hard work, skill and artistry that goes into the making of fabrics the world celebrates.
