A graduate in textile design from the National Institute of Design, (NID, Ahmedabad), I acquired a new insight in terms of my way of looking at ‘Design’ and specifically at craft practices. Working with artisans has its own challenges of different nature; physical, social, environmental, etc.
The crafts practised in Kutch are numerous and by various tribal communities. I was lucky enough to get an exposure to these wonderful people and their highly evolved craft skills while at NID and afterwards as I interned with an NGO based in Ahmedabad.
'Ek Katha' is but naturally the culmination of all those experiences which has inspired me in the development of artisanal clothing and accessories.
