The amazing folks at PARZOR under the leadership of Dr. Shernaz Cama have been coming up with virtual online exhibitions on Parsi and Zoroastrian themes. The latest one is on the Kusti.
Kusti Weaving and Sudreh Making are part of living Zoroastrian Heritage, which links crafts and art to religious traditions. Parzor’s first researcher, Ashdeen Lilaowala, then a student of National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad did the first ever textile study of this Bronze Age Craft of Kusti Weaving in Navsari.
This research culminated into Threads of Continuity , co-authored by Ashdeen Lilaowala and Dr. Shernaz Cama available for purchase at:https://goo.gl/XsJIo9
