You can be excused if you have never heard of Rogan Art before as it is only practiced in the Kutch district in the Gugurat region of Western India. Rogan Art involves the painting of a castor oil-like paint onto silk fabric and then dyed with natural paints. The designs are intricate and detailed and can take many hours of painstaking work to complete.
Given the scarcity of Rogan Art (it isn’t even that well known in India) it is not something you will see very often on crafting sites but we do have a page on the Colouricious site that is dedicated to Rogan Art and show you some of the wonderful designs that can be created using it.

We are planning to see this textile art first hand during our textile holiday to Gujarat, that we are in the processing of preparing at the moment. So do keep an eye out for announcements about this particular holiday which will be in 2016.
There are some new holidays for 2015 including a wonderful trip to Bhutan. This is a super exclusive trip as the king allows only 10,000 visitors into this tiny country each year. Placing are filling up very quickly so if you are interested you need to move quickly. Download the booking form from this page and send it back to me as soon as you can to reserve your place. To date, we have 8 places left on this holiday so there is still room for you too!
If Bhutan is not for you then we have lots of other holidays arranged that are equally exciting. Take a look at the Holidays page of our website to find the trip that is most suitable for you. I am sure there will be the perfect holiday for you!
We have added some wonderful new items to our Latest Arrivals page for 2015. There are some wonderful new blocks as well as some gorgeous dabu fabric that would be perfect for quilting. You can check out all of our latest arrivals by visiting our website.
