19TH CENTURY TURBAN



This stunning cotton turban is currently on display at the ROM as part of BIG (a collection of fashion and textiles on a grand scale).  From 19th century Rajasthan, the 57 different patterns are created using a resist method and 7 different dye baths.  You can watch a video here outlining a resist dye method.  This turban would have marked the wealth of its wearer.  Another highlights of BIG is a couture dress from the 2011 Dior Collection accompanied by a video outlining the 500 hours taken to construct the garment.
