The fair will feature an artistic blend of fabrics; Kalamkaris from Andhra Pradesh, Linens and Tussars, from West Bengal, Ikats from Odisha, Ajrakhs from Gujarat, Jamdanis and Kanthas from West Bengal, Chanderis from Madhya Pradesh, Kotas from Rajasthan, Banarasi Sarees from Uttar Pradesh, and tribal weaves from the North East. The carnival will display the art and expertise of Indian craftspeople in different designs and patterns, from patchwork to calligraphy; from Khadi to Shiboris; from Applique to Paithanis. 

A saree in India is considered an integral part of the traditional, Indian woman. It is a glimpse of the Indian culture, a six-yard long fabric that has its roots in India since 1800 BC. The Grand Saree Fair brings you the essence of the Indian culture under one roof, from the nooks and corners of India, yarns woven to make one beautiful piece of fabric.With an entry fee as minimal as INR 30, you can go and take a splendid tour of the carnival with a lot to do. The Great Saree Fair will also include some heartwarming performances and an exhibition of natural, organic products. You can also treat your taste buds with some sumptuous delicacies from across India. 

About Dastkar : Dastkar is a private not-for-profit NGO established in 1981, working to support traditional Indian craftspeople, many of them women and village based, with the objective of helping craftspeople regain their place in the economic mainstream, in a country where the craft sector is second only to agriculture in providing employment.

Laila Tyabji, the founder and the face of Dastkar has worked with craftspeople, documenting their art and preparing them for an urban clientele.

Dastkar strongly believes in crafts as a catalytic tool for social and economic empowerment and earning. It is committed to breaking the barriers that separate craftspeople from mainstream urban markets, reviving and revitalizing both the craft and the community. Partnering with Delhi Tourism, it is developing the NATURE BAZAAR venue in Andheria Modh, in partnership with Delhi Tourism, as a hub for crafts, culture and natural products, linking South Delhi and Gurgaon.

Dastkar assists craftspeople through support service activities such as capacity building workshops, skills training, collaborative design innovation and product development; helping them transform traditional skills into products that have contemporary appeal, thereby providing craft communities with a source of permanent employment and sustained earning.

Today the organization works with an ever growing family of more than 350 craft groups and small producers, directly and indirectly affecting the lives of approximately 43,000 artisans from across 22 States of India.

Started in 1981, Dastkar affects the lives of more than 1 lakh artisans every year working with over 600 crafts groups across 29 India States. We strongly believe in crafts as catalytic tool for social and economic empowerment and earning. Dastkar’s role is to help craftspeople find the opportunity, confidence & resources to become self-sufficient. Our Bazaars and Exhibitions provide craftspeople with exposure and direct interaction with the urban customers, enabling them to gauge market trends and customer demands for themselves.
