A unique opportunity to participate in an immersive session with private collector Romi Lamba. Romi will walk us through his journey of more than three decades, building an unrivalled collection of rare, antique Kashmir and European shawls, some woven as early as 1820-1890. The masterpieces from his collection will be on display, and Romi will tell us the story of each exceptional shawl. This session is a true masterclass in ancient textiles - from yarns to looms, colours, patterns, motifs and provenance, there is no facet of this treasured craft that Romi isn't an expert on.
