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.
