The Weavers Studio

Kolkata, INDIA


Weavers Studio brings out the richness of traditional textiles and weaves which showcase the vivid Indian design to contemporary silhouettes and handcrafted wearable textiles. The Studio has always endeavored to appreciate, explore, nourish & promote traditional textile art forms of not only India but also those of various cultures & peoples of the world. Designers from the Studio have been regularly visiting Arimatsu & Kyoto since 1995 to learn shibori and hone their craft under the great Japanese masters. The Studio has also experimented with the concept of ‘fusion’ textile art by embellishing shibori textiles with diverse embroidery forms such as Kantha, Applique & Patchwork.
