MICHELE VARIAN: Favorite Destination

  What is your favorite destination and why?
India, because it does not disappoint as far as feeling transported to a different world. Since I work in textiles, I was in heaven. On my last trip I visited a village with weavers on handlooms who could do anything. The owner was a woman and super proud to be employing so many people from the village. I’ve now made a few collections of limited edition pillows made from her fabrics. The looms themselves were works of art.
