Les textiles patola de Patan ( Inde), XVIIe et XXIe siècles : techniques, patrimoine, mémoire

Abstract : Created in Patan in Gujarat, patola silk is considered to be among the best handwoven silk in India. A long standing weaving tradition, the patola silks fall under the resist-dyed category of textiles where both weft and warp threads are dyed before the weaving begins. Although the patola textiles were extremely popular in the global market in the 18th and 19th centuries, especially in Indonesia, this weaving technique and the textiles face an imminent danger of extinction. Today, there is only one family in Patan that still practices this art. This research aims at examining the history of this textile and its significance in globalization and crosscultural exchange. It explores museological strategies that could generate models for preserving and valorizing this as well as other cultural expressions in danger of disappearing in contemporary India.
