As a young entrepreneur or as a student, I have always been a strong advocate of using Indian Textile Crafts, with a twist, and bringing them in the limelight which they deserve. A fashion design graduate from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune with Masters in Textile Design from University of the Arts London.I have so far worked with three traditional crafts of India namely Batik (Madhya Pradesh), Ikat (Andhra Pradesh) and Kinnauri Shawl Weaving (Himachal Pradesh) with a vision to revive them with contemporary aesthetics thus bridging the gap between the artisans and global market. A Textile Designer and an Interior Stylist by Profession, I am a co-founder of a sustainable clothing brand- House of Tamarind which works solely with the purpose of revival of Indian Crafts. Having an eye for trends and a love of interiors is what motivated me to turn my passion into career.

The Woven Chant

'Woven Chant' is the outcome of an experiential and experimental revival of the untouched traditional Kinnauri Shawl Weaving Craft of Kinnaur, India. The endeavour to translate and transfer the meditative experience of Kinnauri weaving to the wearer, exactly as sensed by the weaver, will help in creating an engaging consumer experience specific to the craft and also boost its recall value. The spiritual calmness endowed by the Buddhist influence on this craft is sure to attract numerous patrons in today's mentally tumultuous times. Acting as catalysts on the journey from thought to stillness, not only is the visual design of these pieces holistically worked on but their making is also sustainable and authentic. Enriched with the time, skill and emotions put in by the craftsman, the final pieces redefine luxury in the times to come, contradicting today's brand- conscious notions of the same.
