“Art and Handcrafts are the two significant signatures of India” and “Skillful hands knowing such popular art is indeed a true heritage and treasure for the country,” says the co-founder and CEO of the contemporary handloom apparel brand EthnicShack.
 
In her article on the vividness and richness of traditional Indian hand-crafted textiles titled ‘Indian Handcrafts’, Srijata Bhatnagar celebrates the Indian artisans who with their exemplary crafts and techniques, which have been passed on to them by their older generations, have added on to the country’s legacy of sumptuous art and culture.
 
“India is a country renowned for its art and culture” and “there is nothing new in saying the fact that India’s heritage treasures excellent artisans and craftsmen. Our designs, patterns and bold use of colors not just lures the viewer but also is remarkably appreciated for the hard work of crafting and designing,” she elaborates on the intricacies of producing the items.
 
Later the article explains the reasons behind the widespread popularity of hand-woven cloth: “Indian textiles are worldwide famous for its pure quality, carved patterns and designs, durability, texture and comfort. Cotton and Silk are the most popular cloths preferred for textile purpose.”
 
While emphasizing on the varieties of silk sarees available in the country and its importance in Indian rituals, the writer adds “Kanjeevaram is the finest form of silk popular in South India. Kanjeevaram sarees are made with rich zari work and are popular for vibrant colors as well. A wedding is incomplete in South India without these saris.”
 
The article also enlists the zari and organza embellished Banarasi silk sarees, which are preferred mostly in the northern and eastern belts of the nation, as well as the exquisite handmade Ikat silk, and Patola—which is now woven only by a restricted number of artisan families in Patan, Gujarat.
 
The write-up additionally sheds light on the myriad embroidery techniques, including the zari work ‘Zardozi’, Uttar Pradesh’s minutely carved thread work ‘Chikan’ and the mirror work of Rajasthan ‘Sheesha’, alongside the carpet weaving craft of Kashmir. (PB)
