With the main focus on Asian Indian immigrants seeking the comfort of their history and culture in the United States, this thesis has tried to find a bond between two cultures. By investigating similarities between textile traditions from both of the countries, a familiarity has been revealed. This thesis paper looks at Indian sari design patterns and American quilt design patterns as the media of the cultural familiar to the respective countries. The thesis studies the history and traditional importance of these two textiles in their individual cultures. The paper emphasizes the idea of hybridization, which will bring the positive familiar between both Asian Indian and American communities to live and share the process of acculturation by understanding the cultures and traditions of each other.
