    Posted @withrepost • @theplatedproject We bring you the Past.Present.Future collection which celebrates traditional art forms in new, unexpected ways.

    We explore Gond, Kalighat and Pichwai art forms. For each of them, we bring forth two plates; one where we pay tribute to an artist who brought forward the evolution of that art form and another where we dive into a folk tale that is intimately connected to that art form.

    Dive into these limited edition hand-painted plates…link in the bio!

    A wonderful collaboration in the Creative space of the country with a genuine vision of good for the community at the back!

    Thank you @theplatedproject for leading and implementing with such exemplary efforts and @ekibekiassociation for the deepest artisan and community connect, making this project possible.

    Posted @withrepost • @theplatedproject In collaboration with @creativedignity and @ekibekiassociation we birthed this limited edition inaugural collection for Past.Present.Future - a collection of 6 exquisite, hand-painted artisan art plates, that celebrate traditional art forms and the legacy of artisans.

    Every sale sponsors 10 meals for the artisan community while also generating income for them.

    How excited are you to get your hands on this exclusive collection?

    During these 75 years of Independence with our Swaraj, we the people of India have upheld the doctrine of Swadeshi in our thoughts, actions, traditions, and progress.

    Let's continue to be Swadeshi in its true spirit - Speaking our minds, respecting the dignity of our fellow Indians, and taking pride in our culture and its handmade manifestations.

    With our ever-evolving world, let the spirit of Swaraj and Swadeshi always grow!

    #LOVETHELOOM everyday with @lekopebyayang's dauly essentials and contemporary weaves

    Posted @withregram • @lekopebyayang We are a little late for a post, but everyday is handloom day for us. We celebrate women weavers of Majuli island each day, everyday.

    The best and simple way one can support handloom is by simply buying a piece 🌷🌼 we believe this can't be a charity, and the design should speak for itself. We contemporarise the colors and products for more people to love and own handlooms. 🌸🌷🥰

    Reposted from @deepali.kholkar Always happy wearing handloom..

    I #LOVETHELOOM because our handloom weaves are breathtakingly beautiful..for the rich yet simple texture and elegant look of handwoven fabric that no other textile can match..for its sustainability..and most of all, for the skill and dexterity of our weavers who create these beautiful works of art with their hands, their imagination, and the most minimal of tools and resources.

    On Handloom Day, my respects and salute to their unsung talents. Let us do our bit to ensure they at least get a decent livelihood..and the recognition they richly deserve..Let us pledge to choose handloom.

    #LOVETHELOOM with @whoaamir_khan and @dastkar.delhi

    Reposted from @whoaamir_khan Happy Handloom Day🍃

    Handloom is an essential source of livelihood in rural and semi-rural parts of our country. It is a sector that directly addresses women’s empowerment with over 70% of all weavers and allied workers being female.
    .
    On this handloom day, we honour our handloom weaving community and highlight the sector's contribution to the country's socioeconomic development.
    .
    It inspires us to protect our handloom heritage and empower the handloom weavers and workers.
    .
    What is your story? Please share your inspirational moments with us and encourage others.

    Shri. Paravur Gopalakrishnan, 74 years of age Weaver for over 50 years.

    Shri Gopalakrishnan has been a weaver for longer than most of us have been alive, he is also a poet and loves to sing his poems to those who will indulge him. He is eager to see more young people come into weaving and recounts the life of being a weaver, as one dotted with both hard times and good ones.

    ശ്രീ ഗോപാലകൃഷ്ണൻ 50 വർഷത്തോളം കാലമായി സഹകരണ സംഘത്തിൽ നെയ്യുകയാണ്. അദ്ദേഹം ഒരു കവി കൂടിയാണ്, സംഘത്തിൽ വരുമ്പോൾ, അവിടെയിരുന്നു തന്റെ കവിതകൾ പാടാൻ ഇഷ്ടമാണ്. കൂടുതൽ ചെറുപ്പക്കാർ നെയ്ത്ത് രംഗത്തേക്ക് വരുന്നത് കാണാൻ അദ്ദേഹം ആകാംക്ഷയോടെ കാത്തിരിക്കുന്നു, ഒപ്പം നെയ്ത്തുകാരൻ എന്ന നിലയിലുള്ള ജീവിതത്തെക്കുറിച്ച് , കഷ്ടകാലങ്ങളും നല്ല സമയങ്ങളും എല്ലാം നമ്മളോട് പങ്കു വെച്ച്.
