Shabnam is a film that explores the historic and continuing relationship between EastĀ Lancashire and Bangladesh in a textile tug-of-war, starting with the delicate muslin producedĀ in Dhaka in the 17th and 18th centuries and highly prized by the British fashion market, through to the migration of textile workers to Lancashire in the 20th century and back to present day garment workers in the same city in Bangladesh.

Shabnam is co-presented by Lancashire Encounters and the British Textile Biennial
