Jasvinder Kaur studied textiles at Delhi’s Lady Irwin College. Many years later, it was a fascinating walk down the famous Chicken Street in Kabul, lined with displays of Central Asian textiles, which inspired her to pick up the threads again. Since then, over the course of 30 years, she has been continuously engaged with the subject. This has included consultancy assignments at the Musée d’art et d’histoire and Musée d’ethnographie, both in Geneva, Switzerland, and lecturing as visiting faculty at the National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi. Her articles have featured in international and Indian publications, and she is a regular contributor to The Tribune, Chandigarh—the city she calls home.
She is the author of Influences of the British Raj on Attire and Textiles of Punjab
