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.
Tradition is what inspires us, and the challenge is always to present it within a contemporary context.
