Can’t wait to travel in 2021?

Hello everyone, we hope we find you well and looking forward to the time when we can all once again travel to tropical climes and warm seas – we are certainly looking forward to seeing you! 

Here at Textile Travels we are excited to learn more about the development of several global and effective Covid 19 vaccines, even though it may take months before they are fully rolled out.  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/covid-19-vaccine-oxford-update-pfizer-moderna-when-uk-coronavirus-priority/

Travel Restrictions

There’s a glimmer of hope about the lifting of restrictions to travel to India. Although at the moment  the Indian government has shown no signs of restoring international flights and Indian tourist e Visa’s are still not being issued, there is an expectation that this may be lifted in December 2020.

Despite signs of hope on the horizon, we at Textile Travels have the health and wellbeing of our guests, as well as that of our hosts and artisans in India at heart, so it is with great sadness that we have decided to postpone our South Indian Threads tour until early 2022.

In the light of the above, we are continuing to plan to make our tours as safe and enjoyable as we possibly can to give our guests the holiday they are dreaming of when we are able to take off once again.

Additional New Tour!

We’re also adding a shorter 14 night Kerala based textile tour into our itineraries in the latter part of 2021!

We felt that this option may be popular as a step forward into travelling again that was easier on the pocket and would suit textile enthusiasts with less time at their disposal who wished to explore the textile and cultural traditions of this beautiful state, with its rich cultural heritage and stunning diverse landscapes. This tour will retain many features of our South Indian Threads tour, including two hands-on textile technique workshops.

We’ll be announcing this exciting tour in January 2021 and booking should be available from April 2021.

South Indian Threads Tour

Plans for our South Indian Threads tour are still very much on the agenda for early 2022. We need to be sure that all the ingredients in our wide ranging and adventurous itinerary will be available at this time. We’ll keep you updated about progress on this into 2021.

All our workshop providers, artisan hosts and hotels are as enthusiastic as we are to provide the most enjoyable experiences for you as soon as is safely possible. Stay with us to keep updated as we begin to see the sun rising on a new tropical dawn.

Keep dreaming!
