The Treasure of Rogan Art

In Western India, resides a family that practices Rogan art, a 300 year old art tradition.

They have received awards and presented their art to Presidents and illustrious people around the world. Preserved by the men in the family for generations, it is now being taught to women as well and is used on women's wear, bridal trousseaus, home linen and more contemporary products lately. We will explore this beautiful skill and hope that they let us in on some family secrets!
