The Karun Thakar Fund
As a way of acknowledging Karun Thakar’s generosity in allowing Soane to draw inspiration from the textiles in his collection, we initiated The Karun Thakar Fund
in collaboration with the V&A Museum.
Established in 2021 by Soane and anonymous donors, The Fund promotes materials-based, object-led learning, drawing on the collections of both the V&A and Karun Thakar and offers scholarships to student practitioners and researchers studying any aspect of Asian or African textile/dress design or history. By choosing fabrics from Soane’s collaboration with Karun Thakar you are directly supporting this Fund.
