New Delhi’s Lotus Temple is a landmark of contemporary architecture. The striking Bahál'í house of worship was built in 1986 as a dome that mimics an unfolding lotus blossom. Its white concrete “petals” are dramatically lit up at night, and the structure is surrounded by nine ponds and 26 acres of formal gardens.

Black Bandhani Jacket
Black Bandhani Jacket
(Based on 4 reviews)

Textile arts flourish in the rural villages of western India’s Thar Desert: Wide swaths of hand-block-printed fabrics are laid in the sun to dry. Women in Rajasthan create multicolored fabric mosaics using embroidery and appliqué. And artisans throughout the desert region practice bandhani, a deceptively simple tie-dyeing technique. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments that drape beautifully and multiply your travel wardrobe.
