Crafts Council of Telangana conducted a two-day exhibition, where designers from across India displayed their products at N-Convention Centre recently. There were more than 100 stalls displaying their unique products from pan-India in the exhibition.

Bhoomi Dani, founder, creative head and Designer of Vraj: Bhoomi from Ahmedabad said “We have our own store in Ahmedabad. I am doing this since three years with my business partner Priyam Shah.

Our product range includes jackets, kaftans, tunics, bottoms, sarees, scarves and stoles, footwear among others!”

Bhoomi informed that they are trying to revive the Gujarati craft Ajrak. “The craft is 500 years old. We are trying to involve deeply in reviving and sustaining the inherent quality of traditional Indian crafts, and consistently seeking to push boundaries in the creation of a new aesthetic using old-world and traditional processes.

We work closely with artisans by providing various inputs including design, quality control, access to raw materials and production coordination.

The vision continues to be to maximise the ‘handmade’ element in our products, whether it is hand woven, hand block printing or hand embroidery.”

Satish, owner of the stall Sutra Durrie incentive of Warangal, he says, “Durries are produced widely in Warangal and has attractive shades with contrasting colours, borders and figurative elements such as mosque, minarets, Hindu shrines and oil lamps, etc.

The woven designs are geometric, floral or even tribal. Sutra Durries is a project, where we search for independent weavers and give them work.”

Tirupati-based Padmaja, who is participating in the exhibition along with her daughter Divya, is showcasing the Kalam Karri materials.

About her products she says, “From 10 years we are in this craft. Using embroidery we make dupattas, sarees and dress materials.

We use natural fabric and colours. We got a very good response in this exhibition.”
