Pune, March 14th 2017- Hands of India, a collaboration of weavers and hand-embroidery groups for all over India, is back for its summer edition in Pune! Started in 2010 by a team of two sisters – one an ex- Air Force Officer and another a Software Architect works with weaver and hand-embroidery groups from all over India to create contemporary apparels and home furnishings. This enterprise was started to provide employment to people in the rural villages and small towns with a keen focus on handlooms and hand-embroidery. It aims at preserving the rich textile and handcrafting traditions of the country which is slowly dying out due to the heavy use of machinery. It also gives more importance to the artisan rather than the art, as they believe that the artisan creates the art and gives it life.
HOI features handcrafted women’s apparel which is made from the finest cotton which can help to withstand the blazing summer that is yet to come. HOI will feature 10 hand embroidery forms from all over the country such as, Phulkari from Punjab, Chikan/Pattiwork/Aari from UP, and English Embroidery & Kantha from West Bengal along with many more! It will also include the Mekhala Kurta collection which takes four different women groups to create! These fabrics are the proper and must have attire for the harsh summer season! Also included will be HOI’s most prized work, the hand-woven Begampuri, Dongurai, Mangalgiri mirror work and Pulia sarees which always catch the attention of the crowd!
The exhibition will start on March 17th 2017 and will continue till 21st of March 2017. It will take place at Tilak Smarak Mandir, Tilak Road, Sadashiv Peth Pune.
With various and outstanding collections to choose from, it should not be missed!
