OUR PARTNERS FROM GUJARAT

For last eleven years, Babu and his wife have been perfecting the art of high quality textile weaving from their family-run workshop. They told us how this is an art passed down through generations, the knowledge he is excited to pass down to their daughters.

The craft of hand weaving involves a lot of skill and patience. To ready the weft for the loom is a five day long repetitive process but the end result is the most amazing handwoven textile you’ve ever worn.

OUR PARTNERS FROM RAJASTHAN

We met Arvind and his team in their sunlit studio verandah in west Rajasthan in the early hours of the morning. His wife Sudha welcomed us with a cup of masala chai. Soon after our arrival the workshop filled up with sweet thump sound of blocks hitting the padded table.

Impatiently waiting for us to finish our tea, Arvind took us through the ancient process of block pitting with natural dyes and mineral which he learnt from his father and grandfather.

We couldn’t have been more excited to learn about their open-mindness to incorporate new ideas to create a high-qality textiles range using their age-old technique.
