We are very excited to announce that, following our first ever crowdfunding campaign, The Fabric of Tibet: Regional Dress from the Roof of the World will be published this summer! This beautiful book will contain nearly 200 paintings illustrating Tibet’s rich history of regional dress, a fascinating and fast disappearing aspect of cultural heritage.
We were overwhelmed by the response to our crowdfunder. With your support we reached our initial fundraising goal of £3,000 within one week! After 40 days we had raised a total of £6,034 from 139 backers.
This has enabled us to work on a colouring book adapted from The Fabric of Tibet. Accompanied by simple Tibetan and English captions, it will allow children to learn about Tibetan culture from a young age. Due to be finished in July, we will distribute it to Tibetan schools in India and Nepal and the Tibetan community in the UK.
