Patterns Of Trade: Indian Textiles For Export

The Patterns of Trade: Indian Textiles For Export exhibition highlights Indian textiles from 1400 to 1900. These textiles were traded across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. The exhibition itself is the first time that such a large quantity of these heirlooms and trade items are on display for the general public.

The brightly coloured, intricate patterns became everything from clothing to table cloths to tapestries. These items are part of more than seventy pieces in the exhibit, along with tools and dyes that the Indian people would have used.

Seeing the textiles in person and learning about how they were created centuries ago is an incredible experience to behold. During that time period, Indians produced the majority of textiles for the Eastern World. Patterns of Trade: Indian Textiles for Export captures the vastness of the Indian textiles and their prominent place as forerunners in textile design.

Haroko Studio was extremely honoured to receive the commission to create a virtual tour for Patterns of Trade: Indian Textiles for Export. Our responsibility in this project was to document the exhibition so it could be shared online in 360 degrees. With our virtual tour, anyone can experience this impressive historical exhibit.

360° Panoramic Photography

HDR photography technology was used to produce the high-quality images for this museum virtual tour.

In a museum, lighting can be dim at certain areas, and getting details out from just a single shot can be tricky without compromising quality. As seen in these spherical shots, multiple exposures were used to capture more data and increase the range of detail.

This is known as a spherical projection, which is another way of viewing panoramas.

With the wide range of lighting information captured, we could recover the details hidden in the shadows and highlights of the complex textile designs.
