Magic of Bawan Buti fabrics to be revived

Apr '09
Nalanda, the town famous in ancient India as a centre of learning and is also equally well-known for one more thing; Bawan Buti sarees. Buti or motif as it is called in today's parlance was an art mastered by the handloom weavers of Nalanda in those days.

Other than sarees, these artisans also designed and created beautifully patterned home textiles and fabrics which used to adorn the homes of the rich and the famous. But with the passage of time, this wonderful art passed in to oblivion.

But now, the Delhi based Asian Heritage Foundation (AHF) with aid from the World Bank and the Japan Development Social Fund is all set to revive the magic of this wonderful and traditional art with the help of a few like minded artists of the country.

Designer Rita Kapur Chisti is the consultant on this project and Director of AHF, Rajeev Sethi is preparing designs for the sarees taking inspiration from old designs and they are also assisted by other project designers Pradeep Pillai and Hitesh Rawat.

These artists will be closely working with starting the work with the weavers of Basawan Bigha and spinners of Uparanwa village in Nalanda district.
