Priya Ravish Mehra

Rafoogar Meets Kiltmaker, 2011

Cafe India, 109 Gordon St

Darned fabric and thread


Priya made this artwork with Intekhab Ahmad and Zakir Hussai, two ‘Rafoogars’ (skilled darners). Rafoogari is an ancient craft associated with the repair of Pashmina Kashmir shawls. Through recycling, up-cycling, mending and transformation, she linked the textile history in India to the craft community in Huntly, and its history with the linen industry in the 18th century. Priya’s project culminated in a Craft Makers’ Tour of Huntly, showcasing fifteen craft practitioners in nine different locations throughout town.
