The Muslin Festival, hosted by Drik in collaboration with Aarong and the Bangladesh National Museum is set to start on 5 February 2016. The monthlong national exhibition will opens at the Nalini Kanta Bhattashali Gallery, Bangladesh National Museum.

The festival features an exhibition, a cultural and fashion show, seminar, launches of a book, a commemorative stamp and a documentary on the making of muslin in Dhaka that had been home to the finest of its clothes for centuries.
