Textile Group Tours

If you would prefer to travel to India in a group with likeminded individuals, then you may wish to consider joining one of our escorted trips. With over a decade worth of first-hand India travel planning experience, Siân curates and escorts small groups on carefully designed journeys across different regions of the country. Each group journey has been curated with a real focus on authentic textile and craft experiences and with a chance to encounter insightful experts and hosts along the way.


Our group tours do not focus on in-depth craft workshops throughout the trip. Instead we allow our guests to immerse themselves in the culture and experience of India, while getting the chance to soak up textiles, crafts and other cultural highlights. 

All of our groups are small with no more than 6-8 people and our chosen accommodation includes the best small boutiques and independent owner run hotels. We only run our groups 2-3 times a year.

Delhi & Rajasthan

Explore the traditional crafts and textiles of Rajasthan on this small curated group where we will journey through Delhi, Jaipur, Jodhpur and the rural countryside. We will have the chance to meet with expert artisans, including block printers, bangle makers, tie dyers and dhurrie weavers. Learn about traditional textiles with visits to museums and creative houses as well as trying your hand at some traditional crafts yourself.

We have also designed the trip to show you India away from the generic tourist excursions so that you can enjoy a true authentic journey . Some of the immersive experiences include enjoying a home cooked meal with an family of artisans, a walk through hidden corners of Jaipur to find local craft makers, an e-rickshaw tour with a woman-led NGO and a chance to experience life in a rural village.

During the journey, we will get to stay in small intimate properties that are owner run. This will enable us to really get under the skin of the area, with opportunities to interact with the hosts and experience true authentic Indian hospitality. One of the highlights includes a stay in a 300 year old fort in the middle of the beautiful rural countryside, surrounded by local villages. 

Mumbai & Gujarat

Travel off the beaten path on this small curated group where we will journey through the mega city of Mumbai and into the villages and salt tinted landscapes of Gujarat. We will have the opportunity to meet with artisan communities where some of India's finest textiles are produced. From embroidery, tie dye and block printing, to weaving and fabric painting - we will unravel the textile treasures from this corner of India.  

We always believe in designing our tours to show guests unique corners of the country which are not always on the main tourist trail. Some of the immersive experiences on this tour include seeing where cotton is grown, before it is then hand woven by a local community. A visit to a Mumbai bazaar to see women shopping for spice mixes using secret family recipes, as well as meeting with embroiders from the village communities in the Banni Grasslands.
