"The saree is six yards of magic. One length of cloth, miraculously transforming itself to suit every figure, style, age and occasion. Dastkar's GRAND SAREE FAIR is a celebration of this  amazing and evergreen garment, but also an attempt to bring the infinite variety of regional weaves within reach of the urban Delhi customer", Laila Tyabji, Founder of Dastkar.

Kalamkari art and printing is concentrated primarily in Andhra Pradesh. Literally translated as “pen craft”; with ‘kalam’ meaning pen and ‘kari’ meaning art, it is among the most beautiful traditional Indian art forms and involves block printing or hand printing, typically done on pieces of cotton fabrics. The unique feature of the Kalamkari art is that it makes use of only natural colours or vegetable dyes. 

Then the Ajrakh textiles, one of the most complex and fine forms of block-printing in the world which have existed for centuries, examples of which have been discovered in medieval Egyptian tombs at Fostat dating back to around the 15th Century. The quality, colours and designs shown in those ancient fragments are still to be found in the Ajrakh textiles produced with equally great skill today by the Khatri community that settled in Kutch, Gujarat, over 400 years ago.

The Grand Saree Fair unfurls such unique collection of artistry, crafted and designed from inner depths of souls by artisans from around the country. 

Besides these, the 25 participants in the fair are not your regular run-of-the-mill players. Each participant weaves and produces high quality, premium sarees.

Apart from this, the carnival is tantalising to food enthusiasts every bit as they can relish delicious regional cuisines f. Intererom across the country. Interestingly, it will also feature some really engrossing saree draping demo workshop by Rta Kapur Chishti, author, researcher & design developer at Taan Baan on 23rd September which will make the exhibition a fun-filled affair for the visitors.

The exhibition will also have a curated saree preview showcasing sarees by some of the leading names in handloom sarees like Bodhi, Dayalal Kudecha, Ethicus, Malavika Chhatterjee, Sangeeta Sen, Taan Baan, Tasar, Tuni Handicraft, Ghanshyam Sarode, Vimor, Vriksh, and Weavers Studio. 

Vimor, which means ‘pure’, is an organization that stands for the reviving of the time-honoured art of designing handloom sarees. Inspired by their study and documentation of antique weaving techniques, Mrs. Chimy Nanjappa and her daughter, Pavithra Muddaya established Vimor in 1974. Vimor started off by encouraging and training small-town weavers to produce traditional, marketable sarees.

Pavithra has actively been involved with documenting design, motifs and weaving techniques. Apart from motivating weavers and training them, they also create sustainable livelihood generation

Vimor has guided weavers by building their confidence. The weavers’ expertise at the loom has ensured long-term financial returns for them. This has not only sustained continuity in work, but also guaranteed employment for years together.

Today 90% of the weavers who have worked with Vimor have become successful businessmen. What’s more, their sons are now confident enough of carry over the lineage. Vimor has therefore succeeded in keeping the second-generation weaver from migrating to cities and losing their social standing.

Pavithra has carried on Chimy’s passion for hand-woven textiles and is now joined both by her daughter and son. 

Bodhi sarees and fabrics have been designed printed &  embellished by a team  of very inspired artisans– dyers, printers & embroiderers led by Mala at the studio workshop of Pradeep & Mala Sinha located in Baroda.

As for the patterns & designs which of course is the soul of Bodhi studio, Mala’s endeavor is to create motifs, forms & patterns that add to the vast repertoire of Indian Textiles that has such an ancient and a rich language of patterning. This attempt to design patterns, that have an Indian ethos– probably helps make the look of Bodhi prints not only distinct but also contemporary  & yet classic in genre lending a certain “timeless” appeal.

Hand printing is not only laborious and demanding on time but also requires tremendous skill & judgement on the part of  the printer. These traditional methods of printing & embellishing fabrics & textiles not only reveals its maker’s talent but also involves the user in a detailed and passionate production process.

A handcrafted process can’t help but resonate in the products beauty & this in turn resonates in the way user cherishes the product. Bodhi’s look is high on making a statement that is understated! Quietly elegant. Perfect for a discerning buyer!

Taanbaan by RTA KUMAR CHISHTI as a label offers an exclusive variety of indigenous organic cottons and low twist silks using hand spun yarns on the desi / traditional charkha / spinning wheel and woven with the finest hand skills on handloom.

The home furnishings collection is developed in Uttar Pradesh in an area that traditionally
used to produce blankets. The decline of the handspinning technique in the area began when
large mills started the production of blankets in Ludhiana and Panipat.

This is an endeavor to revive the handspinning and hand loom skills of the area with desi
organic cotton cultivated in Haryana. Mallawan is a soft handspun fabric woven in a loose
weave which enhances its soft drape, ideal for bed drapes & throws. In order to strengthen its base fabric with embellishment, the kantha stitch & appliqué range has been developed.
Keeping in mind that the spinners & weavers are used to weaving a coarse fabric, all fabrics in the collection are of a coarse count but being handspun with organic desi cotton they have a supple and soft texture.
