In the 17th century, indiennes – printed and painted cotton fabrics from India – became a popular commodity in Europe. Western manufacturers, including scores of Swiss companies, started producing their own versions of these precious items and very soon indiennes were everywhere. This exhibition at the National Museum tells the story of the production of these textiles, discusses colonial heritage and follows the trade routes between India, Europe and Switzerland. There are many sumptuous fabrics on display, including valuable works on loan from Switzerland and abroad.
