Raw, Kanchipuram and Paat silk with Axomiya Zari weaves
It is a natural for a heart to feel nostalgia upon seeing rituals, festivities and celebrations. They bind us to the roots of our ancestry. Our childhood memories are intertwined with certain days when all we did was plan and execute the tasks around the festivity.
Elders commanded, we followed.
The smells of food, flowers and incense.
Whether we loved it or hated it at that time, we could hardly ever escape it.
Now, when I look back, these festivals are my totem to bring me face to face with how much we have changed, how much we don't do anymore like we used to do, and how our tradition too is slowly changing.
In remembrance of festivals and the legacy they have carried for hundreds of years.
Tradition and cultural revival begins at home?
Is our Zarf in the continuation of our culture?
Zarf is one of a kind textile designed to highlight a unique coming together of various techniques and creativity of handcraft. This design will not be recreated. Zarf comes with a blouse fabric designed to encourage mora fireflies to bring their own authentic spirit to the fabrication of blouse fit, usage of borders and edgings.
Blouse worn by Radha is not included.
