Narrating stories through the threads of looms, six designers presented the diversity of weaves at the FDCI curated show “My Handloom – My Pride”

New Delhi (India), February 22: The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) curated a show, elevating the myriad handloom traditions of India, at the 36th International Surajkund Crafts Mela 2023, under the aegis of the Ministry of Textiles and DC (Handloom).

Titled My Handloom, My Pride”, the event held on February, 16, 2023, had six designers, who presented eight ensembles each. They included Kora by Anjali Kalia, Divyam Mehta, Khanijo, Madhu Jain, Payal Jain and Samant Chauhan. Each one distinctively highlighted the enriching weaves, from across India soaked in ancient wisdom.

Designer Samant Chauhan elevated the Bhagalpuri weave in Tussar silk, while Gaurav Khanijo, used Khadi woven in Bengal, with Kantha embroidery detailing on his modern cuts.  Divyam Mehta worked with yarn crafted from agri waste, woven in Bengal. Interestingly, Madhu Jain paid homage to weaves from Orissa, channelling simplicity.    

Payal Jain gave the ancient Pekhwa’ weaving technique which has been passed down generations of master weavers, a memorable representation with endearing shapes. On another note, Anjali Kalias hand block prints in red, black and olive, highlighted with gota, offset with thread, dori and sequins embroidery, made a play for a melange of hues. 

Shri M.D Sinha, IFS, Principal Secretary, Department of Tourism and Heritage, Govt. of Haryana and Vice Chairman, Surajkund Mela Authoritysaid“Indias handloom sector is a symbol of our countrys rich and varied cultural heritage. At Surajkund International Crafts Mela we proudly present handlooms in the most creative and innovative manner, through our collaboration with FDCI.
