The Indian Pastoralists

Among India’s pastoral communities – nomadic groups renowned for their artisanal skill as much as their animal-herding expertise – a keen awareness of the need to share and protect natural resources, preserve historic mechanisms, and maintain their social fabric has enabled ancient traditions to survive in the face of increasing deforestation, desertification and industrialisation. For the country’s new generation of fashion designers, the Indian pastoralist lifestyle offers inspiring solutions to the global fashion industry’s ever-growing focus on sustainability, providing a starting-point for contemporary reinterpretations of India’s internationally celebrated textile and craft heritage.
