Ahmedabad Trunk – The Textile Gallery, Heirloom Shop and Heritage Bookstore
The Ahmedabad Trunk Textile Gallery houses a rare treasure of Gujarati textile arts that spans multiple techniques, materials and practices from far reaching corners of Gujarat. Continually augmented, this collection began with textiles acquired by Anjali Mangaldas. The Gallery exhibits are not for sale – rather to be viewed as a sourcebook of textile crafts available in Gujarat, to inspire contemporary design.
The display at The Ahmedabad Trunk is arranged under four categories of textiles
TUFTED, BEADED & APPLIQUED
DYED, PRINTED & PAINTED
A comprehensive listing of the textile traditions of Gujarat and practicing communities is available in book form at The House of MG and online.
The Heirloom Shop
The shop is an extension to the Textile Gallery. It stocks exquisitely crafted heirlooms of handmade textiles (some similar to those displayed in the gallery) and in wood and metal. Though the products are not classified antiques, they are especially curated for legacy, to appreciate in value over time. A visit to The Heirloom Shop and Ahmedabad Trunk is a must on your stay or visit to the House of MG.
The Heritage Bookstore
This Bookstore is a treasure trove of photo illustrated coffee table and research books on Indian Textiles, jewellery, spirituality, cuisine, travel and wellness from publishers across India.
The Heirloom Store and Heritage bookstore ships merchandise all across India and the world.
