Karomi

Design & colour sensibility are Karomi’s strength. Their ability to create textile textures through a combination of different types of yarns and weaves, distinguishes them from others in the field. While they widely use the Jamdani weaving technique, they also specialize in hand block printing & Shibori.

Introducing Karomi: Karomi Crafts n Textiles, run jointly by Sarita Ganeriwala, a Postgraduate in Textile Design & Development from NIFT, New Delhi and Sarika Ginodia, has been working for the past 8 years with the weavers of West Bengal concentrating primarily on Jamdani weaves. Karomi entered the handloom weaving sector in 2007 through a single weaver in West Bengal. Today they deploy more than 100 looms in several villages in West Bengal, weaving saris, stoles and dupattas.

Why we love Karomi: While design & colour sensibility are Karomi’s strength, their ability to create textile textures through a combination of different types of yarns and weaves, distinguishes them from others in the field. They work with natural fibres like silk yarns, high-count khadi and linens. Their yarns are always hand dyed. While they widely use the Jamdani weaving technique, they also specialize in hand block printing & Shibori. In the year 2012 and again in 2014, Karomi was awarded the UNESCO Award of Excellence for handicrafts.
