My contribution to Incredible India Collaboration.
India Through Weaves -
Since centuries, India is known for its textile art. Various weaving techniques have been inculcated in the Indian culture and lifestyle.
My work is a tribute to this rich traditional art and its artisans who have made it possible to preserve the heritage over the years.
Each alphabet represents a popular weave from different regions of the country and the colour of the respective alphabet represents a particular national symbol.
