India May 16 2013
Colourful India, an easy place to find beatiful fabric for the smûk. For pleasure and for work, with a suitcase full of fabric I have come back from places such as Bangalore and Chennai in the south, Mumbai in the west, Hyderabad in the middle, Calcutta in the east and up north to Delhi. Most remarkable was the state Sikkim all the way in the north, locked between Nepal and Bhutan.
The Indian smûk is made from the fabric used to make the traditional Indian sari. It is silky and very soft.
