Adil Iqbal‘s brilliant Twilling Tweeds exhibition is happening for a whole month at The Nomads’ Tent (St Leonard’s Lane). ¬†It’s free and records the innovative project connecting¬†the weavers of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland with the female embroiderers of Chitral, NWFP, Pakistan.

It comprises “a series of contemporary hand-loomed embroidered textiles will interpret Scottish and Chitrali stories through illustrated narratives.”

The embroidered work is stunning and the stories captivating.

It’s a thrill to have Adil connect with VOXedinburgh.
