The stunning craftsmanship of South Asia and Southeast Asia is often distinctly localised. In this Create Day segment, uncover the exquisite basketry unique to India’s Naga tribes, zardosi and chikankari embroidery from Uttar Pradesh and the black stone pottery of Longpi.

Fashion features prominently, and joyously, too: contemporary style and craftsmanship collide with Raw Mango, who make modern saris using traditional textiles, whilst in Kuala Lumpur, Pink Jambu is bringing new levels of refinement to Indonesian batik with its colourful clutches.
