Marigold, Textiles, Art and Adventures.

We haven’t finished our new web page yet, but I’ve received a lot of requests for information about our tours. So, I’ve decided to add details about the following three tours to our current web page and make it available for those who are interested. If you need more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me at

We have already had two unique tours in India this year: the Gems of Rajasthan and the South Indian tour.

They were a huge success, and we are thrilled to announce our plans for three more tours in October, November, and December of this year.

Each trip is different, and the North and South tours are back-to-back. However, if you are interested in visiting Gujarat in November or December, we have included a side trip to the Taj Mahal for those who have never been there before.

We are committed to providing new trips every year and researching unique textile, art, and cultural sites to ensure something special for everyone.

Our team is currently planning tours for 2024, and we have some exciting surprises in store.
The information on the three upcoming tours will be added this web page, which is currently temporary.

Our new web page, which includes booking facilities and in depth general information, should be ready soon.

In the meantime if you would like any information on this tour, contact
