Exhibitions are good for weavers, says Aneeth Arora

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Designer Aneeth Arora, who is showcasing natural block printing and Bandhini through her label Pero at the second edition of Nayaab exhibition here, says that exhibitions are beneficial for weavers.

The three-day Nayaab exhibition, which began on Thursday, has 19 designers showcasing some of the finest textile traditions of India.

"We believe in working with the same set of people so that they keep getting work. This collection has been made with our association with weavers of Bhuj in Gujarat. I believe a constant flow of work for the weavers is a great advantage for them. We do explore new designs and techniques but we prefer guiding the same set of people with the design expectation," Arora told IANS.

Arora says that the exhibition, curated by Rupa Sood and Sharan Apparao, is all "about natural dyes".

"We decided to work with block printing of natural colours. We are showcasing natural block printing and Bandhini. It is all in black and white to go with the current season. There was no inspiration as such but this was our guiding tone of the collection we are showcasing this year at Nayaab," she said.

The fabric used in her collection is mostly chanderi and khadi from Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal.

Nayaab is also showcasing collections by Akaaro, Bodhi, Divyam Mehta, Eka, En Inde, Flora for Fauna, Gaurang Shah, Indian Textiles, Kashmir Loom, Kora, Monapali, Raw Mango, Sahar Mahjabeen Hasan, Sunita Shanker, Swati Khalsi, Vriksh Odisha Sarees, Vrisa by Rahul and Shikha and Weavers Studio Kolkata.
