Bina Rao of Hyderabad-based Creative Bee foundation and Villoo Mirza of SEWA (Self Employed Women’s Association), Ahmedabad, have for been friends for years, bound by their passion: handlooms.
A vegetable-dyed kalamkari jacket adorns a mannequin in SEWA’s modest workspace in Ahmedabad. “This is for Bina Rao’s collection to be showcased at the International Workshop on Natural Dyes in Hyderabad. Besides, I will be presenting my own line,” Villoo Mirza says. The line will feature mosaic-like appliqué patterns Gujarat is known for.
The SEWA studio deals with a multitude of textiles and techniques, from Kutchi to Kashmiri embroideries and the coarse Japanese Boro yarn.
The establishment’s ability to cater to diverse requirements is its hallmark, says Bina: “Once I design the garments, the fabrication work is done at Mirza’s studio.”
