CSMVS MUSEUM, MUMBAI

A dedicated textile gallery namely “The Indian Textile and Costume Gallery, a permanent collection at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya returns to the museum after a 15-year hiatus, and it is of particular significance in the Mumbai city, whose contours were once defined by its textile mills.

With a rich background of textiles in our country, and a legacy referenced from the Vedic times, the Textile Gallery draws its design inspiration from the nature of textiles itself; whilst its curatorial footprint is theme-based. Using the warp and weft – the basic constituents of the weave, and the two most common practices in textiles – weaving and dyeing – a design vocabulary has been culled out that seeks as it informs. Wrapped in a cocoon of black, the exhibits stand out on garment donned mannequins in floor-to-ceiling glass cases, lining either side of the gallery space, commanding one’s attention in a criss-cross fashion. Colours like red, purple, blue, yellow, green and pink (common colours used in dyeing) accentuate different sections of the exhibits.
