India Street aims to highlight the importance of economical and ecological sustainability to consider how contemporary designers can work ethically in a global digital age. India Street, in the Vale of Leven in the west of Scotland, backs onto the remains of a factory that was once the biggest producer of Turkey red fabrics in the world.

The Bombay Sample Book, an industrial catalogue now in the archive of the National Museums Scotland, records some of the many designs that were printed onto this signature red fabric. Designers from India and Scotland were invited to explore the Bombay Sample Book, and respond aesthetically, and with hindsight, to the fabrics, their colours, patterns and motifs. 

These samples have been developed by the designers, in conjunction with small-scale producers in India, into a range of new products, which will be showcased in November 2017 at India Street Bazaar in Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
