The Oxford Asian Textile Group (OATG) publishes its magazine, Asian Textiles, three times a year, now generally with 28-32 pages. It appears in February, June and October.  We welcome input from members — send a review of a book you’ve read, or an exhibition you’ve seen. THE DEADLINE FOR THE NEXT ISSUE IS MONDAY 3 OCTOBER 2016. For further information or contributions contact the Editor.

Most issues feature a report on a key textile collection, Asian textile resources on-line and also report on current research and recent publications. They each include a valuable section highlighting lectures and new and ongoing exhibitions in Britain and abroad.

Each issue also gives fuller details about the latest programme of talks and visits arranged by OATG for its members.

Current Issue:

Sandibai and her daughter on the threshold of her house, Maramanahalli tanda [community] 2013. See Textiles of the Banjara page 8.
