Information about Colouricious Holidays

Colouricious Holidays are perfect for you if you just love stitch, embroidery, block printing, quilting and textile art. We specialise in really unique holidays that go off the normal tourist route and onto the off the beaten track. We love to explore rural villages, traditional textile techniques which honour the ethnic culture of each country that we visit. Always looking out for colour, culture, patterns and people, you will discover India presents a feast for the senses.  On our textile trips, we really want to find the real event with the real people by taking you places that you did not even know existed.  Some of our textile holidays are aimed at those who like a little more comfort – such as in Jaipur, we stay for the whole holiday in one hotel and take little day trips out from that one base. However, some of our textile trips are more intrepid – we have our own coach which travels around a specific area – such as the embroidery holidays – moving onto the next attraction each day. Whatever you love to do and see, you will be delighted at our magnificent little daily adventures together. So if you need a holiday that is for you, featuring visits to what you love, then our Colouricious Textile Holidays are designed for you! Come, enjoy and make new friends too. With a friend, a partner, a family member, or by yourself – we are all together having the time of our lives.

Some of these holidays are hosted by Jamie Malden, who specialises in block printing – so there is a heavy bias on finding some wonderful block printing factory in some remote area somewhere that nobody has ever found before! We love to share our enthusiasm with our guests to find something different, unique and most of all, authentic. That is quite a challenge these days, but not impossible! We work with a team of travel specialists in India. Our account managers are Nilesh and Isha who do all the on ground research to satisfy our requirements and organise the itinerary that we request. Great team work!
