Indian weaves reach to San Francisco
Anuradha Ramam, whose clientele boasts of strong names like Kiron Kher, Dolly Thakore, Bubbles Sabharwal, Lushin Dubey, Brinda Karat, Radhika Roy etc will be showcasing a collection of handwoven sarees, kantha sarees embedded with mirror work, stoles which are handblocked, woven & embroidered and tunics, specially created for NRI’s and American clientele. The collection offers ‘tradition with a contemporary touch’.
Specially designed keeping in mind the western sensibilities, Anuradha has fused Ikat weave with Kantha embroidery in the most beautiful form, with everything handwoven. The colours and weave varies with every batch, making each and every end product unique and exclusive. The collection is a riot of colours and captures the rustic appeal with lots of mirror work.
“I am very contented to see that Indian handloom, weaves and textiles are becoming so popular in the west. This large scale show is my attempt to reach out to a wider audience here and educate them about our rich history of textiles and weaves like Ikat, kantha, telia roomal amongst others. While India is going through luxury & hi-street boom, west is looking at India and absorbing our sensibilities in every aspect. I am excited with the fabulous response I am getting before the show on my collection” said Anuradha.
