East London Textile Arts is an independent arts organisation based in East London, with strong connections to the Art Workers‘ Guild, where their latest exhibition Kalila Wa Dimna Costumes and Embroidery runs concurrently with the other shows. ELTA works with people of all faiths and ethnicities, making community textiles to exhibit and illustrate books, papers and printed fabrics. Projects are run by local people and aim to create textiles that reflect the cultural diversity of the area. They have no paid staff and their projects focus on social, health and environmental issues, as well as any others affecting local communities.
