Our theme this year, inspiring both craftspeople's creativity and our bazaar displays, is the Lotus.
The Lotus is not only India’s national flower, but symbolic of purity and truth. Numerous verses and sayings play on the fact that though it grows in mud it smells of incense. Lotus has been translated into every textile technique –applique, weaving, embroidery, block printing – even the intricate medium of bandini tie-dye. And you find them all over India - carved, painted and embossed in metal, wood, and ceramic, glass painting.As a special festive feature and A CELEBRATION OF THE INDIAN SAREE from 16th-25th November, will be DASTKAR's Curated Saree Preview from textile designers and master weavers like Mala Sinha of Bodhi, Weavers Studio, MalavikaChatterjee, DayalalKudecha, Taan Baan, KaushikGanguly of Tasar, Tuni Handicraft, Vriksh, Vimor, GhanshyamSarode, Sutra Handicrafts, ChamanPremjiVankar, AshaSavla, MuraliSarees Emporium, Rema Kumar, Vaya Weaving Heritage, Sanjukta Roy, Ali Mohd.
